The Ohio Hi-Point Career Center’s satellite Kenton FFA Chapter recently was awarded a $5,000 Helping Communities Grow grant after placing first in the state Nutrients for Life Foundation’s program competition.
The Kenton chapter spread the message of nourishing the world to over 500 elementary, junior high and high school students using newspaper, radio and hands-on science lessons. Other activities included a trip to the chapter’s land lab and the local farm museum. The FFA students also installed raised garden beds at a local homeless shelter.
