By Katie Aikins, Arizona Farm Bureau Ag Education Director: The winners of the From Farm to Football Harvest For All Coin Drive received a surprise in the form of a Penny. Arizona Cardinals Running Back, Elijhaa Penny joined Hickman’s Family Farms and Arizona Farm Bureau Ag in the Classroom for an afternoon on the field with students at Trinity Lutheran School in Litchfield Park. The Trinity Tigers won this unique opportunity after Ms. Haddad’s Kindergarten class raised $565.01, the most of any of the 36 participating classrooms, through the From Farm to Football Harvest For All Coin Drive.
Arizona Cardinals Running Back, Elijhaa Penny spent part of an afternoon with students at Trinity Lutheran School in Litchfield Park, Arizona.
Students were rewarded for their coin collecting with 1 ½ hours of football stretches and drills with Coach Mo. Hickman Family Farms “Funky” and Cardinals “Big Red” were also in attendance cheering on students as they demonstrated their football skills in each of the 5 stations. A special Thank You to all the running backs and quarter backs, I mean volunteers, that trained the football players and executed the plays!
