Ag teacher gifted tractor as a retirement gift

A retiring ag teacher and FFA advisor received the surprise of a lifetime from his students.

Larry Plapp’s students recently restored a 1954 McCormick Farmall tractor for him as part of his retirement present. What gets even better though is the tractor was what he and his brother used when they were growing up.

Plapp’s father purchased the tractor in 1958. He is retiring after working 37 years in education.
