Workshop Week This is just another opportu- nity for me to welcome the EVW staff back to our opening work- shop week on Monday, Aug. 26.

EV-W agriculture teacher honored with national FFA award By Mike Nistler, Staff writer The state of Minnesota now knows what the folks in Eden Valley and Watkins have known for some time: agriculture teacher Tracy Huhn is one of the state's best. Huhn learned that she has received an Honorary American FFA Degree which is given to teach- ers who have created high-quality agricultural education programs. Other qualifications are that 85 per- cent of the teacher's agriculture stu- dents are in FFA and the teacher must have been an agriculture instructor for at least 10 years. Huhn, who teaches in the Eden Valley-Watkins school dis- trict, was one of 54 teachers in the nation and one of two in state to receive the award this year. Huhn will receive the award at the National FFA Convention Fri- day, Nov. 1 in Louisville. "I was notified this spring that I met the qualifications and was asked to fill out a two-page applica- tion, said Huhn, who was featured in the Tri-County News in May for her outstanding work at the school. Areas Huhn was judged on: Classroom instruction - "I teach college-level Animal Science for University of Minnesota credit, and welding articulation credit." Student career development- "I have had numerous state degree, American degree, and proficiency winners - including a national proficiency winner." Student contests and lead- ership positions - "I have had numerous state and Region 5 FFA officers, various teams competing in dairy, meats and general live- stock judging, etc. My parliamen- tary procedure team won the state contest in 2003 and competed at the national level." Partnerships and promotion - "Eden Valley-Watkins FFA alumni supports our chapter through a test plot, corn drive, FFA week root beer floats, Valley Daze Parade and scholarships." Ag program expansion - "Grants received were more than $6,000 this year for our FFA and ag programs, expanding from twohours/day to almost full-time at Eden Valley-Watkins High School." Professional development- "I am a member of the Minnesota Association of Agriculture Educa- tors (MAAE) as well as the national association organizations. I was selected as the Region 5 MAAE Young Member of the year in 2008. Eden Valley-Watkins received the Secondary School Program of the year in 2005." "Tracy is an outstanding edu- cator," said principal Bruce Kiehn. "She is a dedicated and innovative teacher who has done a superb job in creating educational experiences that have benefited our students tremendously. Receiving this award is a true testament to her hard work and desire to provide the best learn- ing opportunities for youth. Our district is very proud of her." Rabbit Skill-A-Thon-Int.
