Congratulations to the Tift County School System and the great work the Agricultural Education Program is doing to promote positive activities within the school and community.

 

They recently received a significant USDA Grant that will help provide more opportunities for the AgEd program and the School System focusing on work at the school farm and the canning plant. The following links provide more details.

It is always great to witness the agricultural education program making a positive difference in the school and community. I am proud of the agriculture teachers in Tift County for this accomplishment.
