Jacob Riley plans to keep the traditional agriculture course offerings as well and says he hopes to expand the school’s existing program. He starts his new job with the Plymouth school system in July. He will also serve as the faculty adviser for the school’s Future Farmers of America program at Plymouth High School.
Plymouth High School Principal Jim Condon says the school remains committed to the program. Its fate was in question due to the retirement of longtime teacher Larry McCollough and mid-year resignation of his replacement. McCollough agreed to come back and finish out the school year and be replaced by Riley.
