“All 18 teachers have a passion for teaching agriculture in Nebraska,” said Megahn Schafer, executive director of the Nebraska Farm Bureau Foundation. “We are very proud to support the future of Nebraska agriculture. Our investment has a great return as the number of schools that offer agricultural education and FFA in Nebraska grows each year.”
