Greenhouse dedicated in Jake Bush honor


On Thursday May 15th, the 2014-15 FFA Officers, Advisors, and members of Jake Bush’s family were on hand for the official dedication ceremony at the CCHS Greenhouse. The Woodbury FFA Chapter also dedicated this year’s plant sale in memory of Jake Bush.

Jake died in a tragic accident in 2006. Jake Bush enjoyed three main things: hunting, fishing, and 4-wheelers. In 2005-2006 Jake was named Vice President of the chapters opening/closing ceremonies team as well as running for a class representative although he was not elected, Jake never gave up. At the beginning of his sophomore year Jake worked hard and was elected Mr. Melton’s 1st Period Class Representative for 2006-2007.

The greenhouse will be devoted to the production of vegetables through a hydroponic system. This years’ officer team also presented an award in Jake’s honor at our annual parent/member banquet. The recipient of the Jake Bush Award was Tommy Melton.

Teacher Courtney Nichols, who runs Cannon County High School's greenhouse program, said Jake was “a special individual that could light up a room with just a smile. He always had a love of the outdoors and of agriculture”.
