The agriculture program at Preston High School has been selected as the 2014 Idaho Outstanding Middle/ Secondary School Agricultural Education Program by the National Association of Agriculture Educators (NAAE).
The State Outstanding Agriculture Program Award winners are outstanding agricultural education programs at either a middle school or high school. Applicants are judged on a variety of criteria, including teaching philosophy, effective classroom and experiential instruction, development of partnerships and professional growth, according to officials at NAAE.
“The agriculture program in Preston has came a long way during my tenure,” said Larin Crossley, head of the PHS ag department. “We have a new building and Josh Evans was added a couple of years ago as a second teacher.
“That is a testament to the great students, parents, administrators and business people that have been supportive and instrumental in our success.”
Crossley said he and Evans are looking forward to starting another year of school and getting to know new students and FFA members in the program.
