Students ditch cars for another ride to school

Some students in central Wisconsin are ditching their cars for another kind of ride. On Friday, about two dozen high school students took their tractors to school.

It started with just three.

My brother and sister started it off,” said Auburndale junior Jenna Breuch.

Now, it's become so much more.

We always have a good turn out,” said Breuch.

Seven years ago Jenna Breuch's siblings started Auburndale's “Bring Your Tractor to School Day.”

I thought it was pretty cool and I couldn't wait to do it," said Breuch.

So, she's carried on the tradition.

We live in a small town and everybody thinks its pretty cool," said Breuch.

Early Friday morning, about thirty high school students headed to school in their tractors. The group started at a family farm, and slowly made their way downtown.

It's fun just bringing them and show everyone what you work for everyday," said Auburndale senior, Tyler Schill.

The group even made a pit stop at the elementary school.

It's something they can look forward to when they get older,” said junior Hunter Harmon. “I'm sure they look up to us."

While the tractors came in all shapes, sizes and colors, they all have one thing in common.

It's a way to show our agricultural spirit,” said Harmon.

We feed America,” added Schill.

Students say that's something they're proud of no matter what day it is.
