Lisa Clement, from Willowcreek Middle School, has been selected as a 2020 CHS Foundation Scholarship recipient.
Fifty teachers from around the United States were selected to receive scholarships from the CHS Foundation to attend the 2020 National Agriculture in the Classroom Conference. Because the conference was canceled due to COVID-19, Lisa and other recipients will receive registration scholarships to the 2021 National Agriculture in the Classroom Conference scheduled for June 28-July 1, in Des Moines, Iowa.
Teachers were selected for their desire to learn more innovative ways to use agricultural concepts to teach reading, writing, math, science and social studies and more. Onsite and traveling workshops at the conference will provide these teachers with demonstrations of how effective the use of agricultural concepts in classroom instruction can be. In addition, teachers will network with other educators who have a passion for Pre-K—12 agricultural literacy.
