Thank You

Normal Community High School made a commitment to an expanded agriculture program and hired its first full-time ag teacher in 2014. It was a good move, as the number of students taking ag classes increased from 75 to 80 the first year to about 200 students this school year.

In the late 1990s, Prairie Central was among the first school districts in Illinois to extend FFA opportunities to junior high students.

All students at the Grand Ridge School are learning about agriculture this year with the development of an ag program at the school that includes kindergarten through eighth grade.
