HCSD Awarded The Cargill Cares Grant
The Hall County School District would like to express its gratitude to Cargill for awarding the school system a $50,000 dollar “Cargill Cares Grant.” The funding went to the district’s agriculture program and was used to purchase two large animal trailers, a truck, and other agriculture necessities. The trailers will come in handy as our agriculture students work with cattle and other animals.
Executive Director of Career Tech and Agriculture Education, Rhonda Samples, introduced Christine Wages and Natalia McNew from Cargill at last night’s board meeting. Board Chair Craig Herrington presented a plaque to both ladies on behalf of the district expressing its appreciation.
Afterward, agriculture teachers and their students said thank you to the Cargill representatives. They explained how the new equipment will help with shows/competitions, and most importantly, how it will allow students to pursue their passion in a career that is vital to our state’s economy.
Once again, many thanks to Cargill for awarding our system a “Cargill Cares Grant.”
