The Lincoln FFA chapter and
agriculture program have been awarded a grant from
Facilitating Coordination in Agricultural Education to build a
greenhouse. Lincoln was among twenty-two agricultural programs in
the state of Illinois to receive one of the Improving Agricultural
Education program grants awarded for fiscal 2009.
The grants are available for up to $10,000 with matching funds.
Lincoln received the full $10,000, which was matched by the Lincoln
Community High School board. Eaton Corp. donated $1,984 worth of
electrical equipment, and Patrick Lee Trucking donated $1,500 in
trucking and excavation for the project.
