OKFB Foundation for Agriculture, WLC donate Ag books to Educators

Tue, 01 Dec 2020 11:07:51 CST

OKFB Foundation for Agriculture, WLC donate Ag books to Educators Twelve Oklahoma educators from across the state recently were presented with a basket of agriculture books for their classrooms.
The Oklahoma Farm Bureau Foundation for Agriculture, alongside the OKFB Women’s Leadership Committee, sponsored this year’s Bushels for Books program. The program takes donated bushels of any commodity crop, as well as monetary donations from farmers and ranchers, and provides bushel baskets of accurate agriculture books to Oklahoma educators.
“Agriculture is the foundation of our state,” said David VonTungeln, OKFB Foundation for Agriculture president. “Many do not understand what it takes to produce food, fiber and fuel in Oklahoma and across the nation. We are hoping these accurate agricultural books will assist educators in teaching the next generation about farming and ranching.”
Educators receiving books include Dr. Shelly Beach, Maysville; Sherri Biggs, Edmond; Jayla Craig, Poteau, Karee Grim, Perry; Teresia Harrison, Stratford; Patti Horne, Indiahoma; Lori Hotfelt, Claremore; Melanie Huston, Tishomingo; Laura Jackson, Snyder; Sharon Lantelme, Shattuck; Becky Owings, Cushing; and Laura Payne, Mountain View.
Applications were accepted from teachers across the state, and winners were chosen by the WLC state board. The books cover various agriculture topics and were picked from the American Farm Bureau Foundation for Agriculture’s list.
“It’s so important that classrooms across our state have access to accurate agricultural books,” said Mignon Bolay, OKFB WLC chair. “We are excited to provide educators with the opportunity to these books in their curriculum as they educate the next generation of Oklahomans.”
