Central High School Awarded Agriculture Grant

Central High School was awarded the Dr. Joe B. Crane Classroom Grant of $500 from the Georgia Agribusiness Council Classroom Grant Program. Central High School was selected for this grant, in part, because of the educational partnership and mentor program between Central High School and Roopville Elementary School. The Central High School Agriculture mentor program is one of only three grants awarded this year.

FFA students from the high school take time to teach “Ag in the Classroom” activities in the elementary school setting. “The opportunity is a success for both the Central High and Roopville Elementary School students. We hope to encourage young students in our community to consider careers in agriculture as they advance through school,” stated Principal Mr. Jared Griffis.

Agribusiness is a $74 billion industry in Georgia, the largest economic engine in our state. This industry is comprised of farmers, processors, manufacturers, distributors, wholesalers, and retailers. The Council felt the proposals for these winning programs best encompass the educational aspects of both the business and spirit of this diverse industry.

 

Ms. Laura Williford and Ms. Nikhol Dysart are Central High School’s Agriculture Department teachers.
