Lanesboro Agricultural Education department receives competitive grant


Mon, Mar 5th, 2012
Posted in Lanesboro All

The Minnesota Agricultural Education Leadership Council (MAELC) awarded a $12,250 competitive grant to the Lanesboro High School Agricultural Education Department. This grant will be used to expand the horticulture curriculum by building a greenhouse to utilize as a learning laboratory. The Lanesboro school system has a strong agricultural education program that is led by teacher, Tim Willette and Assistant FFA Advisor, Kristi Ruen.

MAELC grants range in scale from funding an alternative energies curriculum to providing funding for a wireless agricultural classroom. A total of eleven grants are being awarded to schools and organizations around Minnesota. Since its creation in 1997, MAELC has provided over $2.5 million in competitive grants, scholarships, sponsored projects and awards.

Two types of grant applications were funded. Priority Issues Grants are targeted specifically towards high school agricultural education programs. Quality Program Grants align with the MAELC strategic plan of recruitment, retention, and transition of agricultural education students and teachers.

Established in 1997 by the Minnesota Legislature, MAELC is comprised of sixteen educators, legislators, government officials, and agribusiness and community organization representatives. The Council represents all of the major institutions and groups in Minnesota with an interest in agricultural education and serves as a focal point for initiatives to improve agricultural education in the state.
