Oregon-Davis To Receive $10,000 Grant Check Next Week

Oregon-Davis Jr./Sr. High School

Oregon-Davis High School was recently awarded a $10,000 grant for Biology and Agriculture Technology for 21st Century Learners through America’s Farmers Grow Rural Education, sponsored by the Monsanto Fund.

Local farmers nominated Oregon-Davis teachers Debbie Awald and Jacob Riley to receive the grant, and their nominations were reviewed first by math and science teachers from ineligible school districts then by the America’s Farmers Grow Rural Education Advisory Council. The council, consisting of a group of 26 prominent farmers from across the country, was impressed with the teachers’ dedication to their students and their innovative ideas for improving their students’ educational experiences.

The check presentation ceremony will take place on Oct. 18 at 7:30 a.m. CT in the Oregon-Davis gymnasium, and every member of the community is welcome to attend the presentation to celebrate this great accomplishment by Awald and Riley for the students at Oregon-Davis.
