When an Ames family needed a piano moved from Ankeny to their house, they asked Nevada FFA student movers. “Certainly,” responded Kevin Cooper, Nevada High School agriculture education instructor and FFA advisor.
On Oct.3, Cooper hooked up to the trailer, three students help load binders, a small crib block, pieces of carpet and a furniture dolly. It took about ten minutes to load out of Ankeny, but another fifteen to twenty minutes to secure the piano in the trailer. “Wow, you guys are like professionals!” exclaimed Janelle Matter, the home owner. “You can’t do this without good students” responded Cooper. Then north to Ames, to unload the piano at the Adams residence in north Ames. The Adams family presented the Nevada FFA student movers with a generous donation of $300 for Nevada FFA.
