Michael Stanford, teacher at South Carroll Special School District (Clarksburg High School) received a Garden Grant from Ag in the Classroom through Farm Bureau recently. Presenting the award is Farm Bureau board secretary Lindsey Foster. Stanford won the grant last year for the first time, which was $500 to start his project of raised garden beds on the school campus. He applied again to continue his project, which was for $250. He has also received information that he received an Outstanding Teacher Award for 2022 for Carroll County through The Tennessee Foundation for Ag in the Classroom. He now has the opportunity to apply for more grant money through the White-Reinhardt Scholarship to attend national conference in Orlando, FL next June. The Carroll County Farm Bureau commends Stanford and how he implements the importance of agriculture to his students through his teaching.
