Centre High School graduates Jared Barney, Cassidy Hill, Nellie Kassebaum, and Callie Riffel have been awarded the Kansas Department of Agriculture’s Kansas Agriculture Skills and Competencies Certificate.
They have demonstrated excellence in their high school agriculture education programs by completing classroom ag instruction, supervised agricultural experience, and leadership development through FFA. They also had a cumulative grade point average of 2.5 or higher.
According to Centre FFA adviser Laura Klenda, the certificates provide additional credentials for future employment. She said school districts receive a designated amount of money for each student who is certified, for improving career and technical training programs.
