The Nebraska Farm Bureau Foundation says a Minatare teacher is one of 10 in Nebraska to be awarded funds in support of agricultural education and FFA programs in the state.
Minatare High School ag instructor Nicole Sorensen is being recognized for the impact she’s making in the classroom , FFA chapter, and in the community. Sorensen was the lone Panhandle honoree.
“All 10 teachers are committed to making a difference in rural Nebraska,” said Megahn Schafer, executive director of the Nebraska Farm Bureau Foundation. “We’re proud to support this year’s winners and their contributions to their classrooms and communities.”
Recipients are all agricultural education teachers in their first through fifth year of teaching. Teachers are eligible for increasing awards each year. As the teachers’ impact grows in the classroom, in their FFA chapters, and in their communities each year, the Nebraska Farm Bureau Foundation aims to recognize and support their efforts.
