Foundation funds school farm interns

The Polk County Community Foundation funded two interns, Dylan Turner and Jacob Collins, this past summer to work at the Polk County High School Farm. Both students are active in the Agricultural Education Program at Polk County High School. The students were responsible for caring and feeding animals, maintaining the muscadine vineyard, blueberries, pumpkins and the grounds at the school farm. The students, assisted with the construction of the new Animal Science Barn, which was funded by the Polk County Community Foundation Culberson Grant. Chauncey Barber, Agriculture Instructor, states, “It seems like when we have an idea or need citizens, organizations in our community such as the foundation help make things happen.” Pictured left to right are Dylan Turner, senior, and Jacob Collins, junior.
