Grants benefit more than 200 Goldendale agriculture students



New lab equipment: Goldendale High School ag students will benefit from three grants, written by Randi and Joshua Krieg. The grants provide lab equipment (above), funding opportunities for FFA, and teacher professional development for high school agriscience courses.

The Goldendale Agriculture Program was recently selected to receive three grants that will benefit the students in its program in grades 7-12. The first grant, written by Joshua Krieg, was through Donors Choose. The grant provided $1000 in lab equipment, such as graduated cylinders and beakers, to be used to enhance the current agriscience courses.

The second grant, written by Randi Krieg, is through The Wilco Company. The Wilco FFA Grant is to provide funding opportunities for chapter educational activities, equipment, and service events. Goldendale FFA was awarded $750 in order to raise rabbits as part of its Agriculture program at both the Goldendale middle and high schools. The goal of this project will encourage small animal husbandry, educate about genetics, and increase the number of members involved in the local fair.

The last grant written by Randi Krieg was for $5000 through DuPont-Pioneer. Funding provided by DuPont-Pioneer is essential for teachers to gain cutting-edge technology to enhance their teaching practices and implement science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) based agriculture courses. The Kriegs plan to use the funds for teacher professional development and additional equipment needed for the high school agriscience courses. The impact of these grants will benefit over 200 agriculture students.
