   Southern Alamance High School’s Future Farmers of America (FFA) chapter began in 1960.
“At Southern, we offer a huge variety of classes for the FFA. We teach anything from Animal Science to agricultural education. We have four agriculture teachers on staff to teach the classes and all classes are hands-on,” said Nick Anders, the FFA teacher at Southern Alamance. “We have 4,550 members. We have been the largest chapter in the state of North Carolina for the last four or five years.”
    To raise funds, a bluegrass concert is held each year. The fifth annual FFA Night of Bluegrass will be March 15, 2019, at Southern Alamance High School, 631 Southern High School Road, Graham. Doors open at 5 p.m. and the music will begin at 6 p.m. Russell Moore & IIIrd Tyme Out and Dewey and Leslie Brown and The Country Gentlemen will perform.
Nathan Aldridge, a Southern Alamance High School graduate, is fiddler for Russell Moore & IIIrd Tyme Out.
“Nathan has been a really big help to the program,” said Natalie Maness, who is helping promote the event.
At the fundraising event, there also will be concessions and a 50/50 raffle.

Ticket prices for adults are $15 in advance and $20 at the door. Ticket prices for students are $10 in advance or $15 at the door.
