CHS Receives State Outstanding Program Award


The Caledonia High School Agriscience program was honored with the Michigan Association of Agricultural Educators (MAAE) Outstanding Program Award on Oct. 15 at the MAAE annual banquet in Lansing. “As agricultural educators, we serve in a number of different roles and wear many different hats,” said John Schut, instructor in the agriculture program, “but the primary focus of our profession is empowering young people to achieve and become productive members of our community.”

The agri-science program at Caledonia uses a project-based and interdisciplinary curriculum that is student driven. Students work on projects involving research, writing, presentations and problem solving in the classes offered, including food science, agribusiness, veterinary science, horticulture, equine science and leadership development.

The Caledonia FFA chapter has received a three-star national FFA chapter award, which recognizes the top 100 FFA chapters in the nation. The program was implemented in the 1930s at Caledonia High School and has served the community for nearly 80 years.
