South Central High School To Receive $25K Grant For Greenhouse

The Agricultural Collaboration Education program at the South Central Junior-Senior High School will receive a $25,000 grant through America’s Farmers Grow Rural Education, sponsored by the Monsanto Fund. The grant will be used to build and maintain a greenhouse at the school.

Students will apply math and science concepts to practical, everyday agricultural activities while studying elements at the greenhouse.
