Letter to the Editor

Paid Editorial:

Dear Editor,

I recommend Gary Steinhagen and Terry Morrision for the Belle Plaine School Board. They live on farms and have pledged to support the Belle Plaine FFA Chapter.

There is a position in the Minnesota Department of Education dedicated to FFA. FFA is a national organization begun by the United States Department of Agriculture. What ever you have come to believe about FFA, it is more than just another extra-curricular activity.

The state of Minnesota believes so highly in the competence of FFA advisors that they provide grants and funding for the position. Mr. Mathiowetz received a grant to continue classwork through the summer from the Department of Education. There are other grants that increase the affordability of ag and vocational educators. If the school board would invest in one more vocational position the Minnesota Department of Education would provide a grant for another half time educator.

Vote for Gary Steinhagen and Terry Morrison they will make sure the school board is getting the most from our investment in vocational education..
