WHEATLAND, CA (MPG) – The Wheatland High School Future Farmers of America (FFA) encompasses many vibrant, talented students. Teacher Jeff Magill runs an effective classroom that encourages a variety of skills that include rebuilding antique farm tractors.

Last year, student Samantha Levitt started working on a 1974 International Cub Lo-Boy garden tractor. Samantha is the first female student at Wheatland High School to begin a tractor project that included this 1974 IH Cub Lo-Boy.

International Harvester produced the Cub Lo-Boy from 1955 through 1979 powered by a four-cylinder engine with 11 horsepower. Nearly 26,000 Cub Lo-Boy tractors were produced that included a mower deck as well an assortment of garden accessories. This year, Samantha’s tractor will receive its final polishing and will shortly be sold through the school’s FFA program.

Besides the tractor, Samantha is busy as the school’s FFA reporter, competing in FFA leadership state awards, raising a FFA steer, and participating as a member of the school’s band. After graduating this spring, she will turn her attention to Oklahoma City University with a focus on pre-med.

Thank you to Teacher Jeff Magill for inspiring students to excel in life.
