September 04, 2013

The America's Farmers Grow Rural Education program provided $2.3 million to schools nationwide, including the school systems of Limestone and Madison counties. The program is sponsored by the Monsanto Fund.
Students in Limestone and Madison counties will benefit from math and science initiatives made possible by the America’s Farmers Grow Rural Education grant program.

The Limestone County school system will receive a $10,000 grant from the program for career training at Tanner High School. The funds will buy two laptops and a computer numerical control (CNC) plasma cutting system, a tool widely used in manufacturing.

The Madison County school system will use its $25,000 grant for phase two of the OASIS project at Madison County High School, an outdoor classroom where students can investigate and study science in a natural setting.

The America’s Farmers Grow Rural Education program provided $2.3 million to math and science classrooms in rural areas nationwide and is sponsored by the Monsanto Fund. Finalists were selected from a pool of applicants which were first nominated by farmers in their communities.
