Spencer County High School’s agriculture program was recently selected as the 2012 Kentucky Outstanding Middle/Secondary School Agriculture Education Program, according to a news release from the National Association of Agricultural Educators, Inc.
According to the release, applicants are judged on a variety of criteria, including teaching philosophy, effective classroom and experiential instruction, development of partnerships and professional growth.
SCHS agriculture teacher Daryl Mattherly said that SCHS was the only school from Kentucky to submit an application for consideration in the contest, but that it does shine positive light on the high school’s ag program.
The chapter went on to compete at the national level but did not win at that level.
