New Agri-Science and Agri-Business Programs at Madison-Grant Jr./Sr. High School

Madison-Grant Jr./Sr. High School is happy to announce our newest addition of programming for grades seven through twelve. Leaders at Madison-Grant United School Corporation are bringing the agricultural science and business program to inspire, challenge, and cultivate excellence in every Argyll. The board and administration are still exploring opportunities for future partnerships and program sponsorship's. Students will have amazing opportunities to participate in all aspects of agriculture thanks to our newest addition. We have a brand new 1,400 square-foot facility that will house classes like animal sciences, welding, and green-house projects.

New Ag Educator Courtney TatePurdue University graduate Courtney Tate will teach the first year of the program. Miss Tate is a graduate from Hamilton Heights High School and Purdue University with a degree in agriculture education. The program is to inform students and the community specifically on how we use our resources, whether it is food in terms of crops and harvesting or raising livestock. The program will cover a broad spectrum, and will also go into vocational skills such as welding and mechanics. Tate says, "Being new to the area, I cannot wait to see where I can help take this community as well as where it will take me. Growing together is going to be a major key in the success of this program for years to come. Giving students the opportunity to work on leadership development, broaden their horizons for the future, find a new passion, the outcomes are endless." Tate is originally from Cicero, Indiana. They will back-up students' skills with real life experience, conferences, and workshops. The new updates in the agricultural building include welding bays, maker space, and larger open areas that we can change as needed. 

Our community spoke, brought forth a need, and Madison-Grant is making it happen.
