Fellow Ag Teachers,


It is awesome to witness the great things that happen to our friends in agricultural education. A new born child is in itself something to celebrate, but when it gets national attention because of a wayward text to a stranger who then goes out of his way to show kindness to others – well that is another great reason to celebrate.


What is also very impressive is that Mr. Mark Lashley is taking this opportunity to promote agricultural education and the importance of what he does for his students at Cairo High School. The link below is a great story that shows how passionate Mark is about being an Agriculture Teacher.


Congratulations Mr. Lashley – and thank you for being a true advocate for the agricultural education program.
