DONAHUE, Iowa (KWQC) - Area high school students were at Cinnamon Ridge Farms Thursday learning about the importance of agriculture.

The purpose is to make it a career day, showcasing all the different kinds of careers the students can pursue after high school.

Each student was able to get a unique experience learning from professionals.

"Students are doing a hands on activity working with industry leaders in agriculture, understanding what careers are available to them through John Deere or other agricultural areas," said Jacob Hunter, the Future Farmers of America Adviser for North Scott High School. "They're doing hands on stations with welding, drone work, even seeing some of these awesome implements behind us and how they play into this big mix."

This is the second year Cinnamon Ridge farms hosted the event.
