Erika Anderson, Ag Science teacher at Homer High School, is the recipient of a national award for excellence in education. Ms. Anderson is one of only 45 teachers in the nation to receive this award for her efforts to enhance classroom curriculum with the inclusion of units focused on agriculture and food systems. She will be recognized for this achievement at the National Agriculture in the Classroom Conference this summer in Kansas City, Missouri, the week of June 20-23. Her attendance at the conference is sponsored by a scholarship from the CHS Foundation, a stewardship program of CHS, a global agribusiness involved in energy, grains, and foods owned by U.S. farmers, ranchers and cooperatives.
