Iowa Educator Receives DuPont AgriSCIENCE Award for Teaching Excellence
Date:3/21/2013

e than 30 years as an agriscience teacher, Lemmer has mentored more than 1,100 students in FFA activities, with the Linn-Mar FFA Chapter currently rated a Superior Chapter in Iowa. “Being involved in FFA activities is a great way to provide proper orientation toward leadership and character education. It allows students to recognize their potential, develop their competitive spirit, and build pride in improving themselves and their community,” said Lemmer.

As an ambassador for agriculture, Lemmer notes, “In our current society, many people do not realize the impact agriculture has on their lives and the environment. I strive to instill in my students the importance of agriculture and encourage them to have an appreciation of those who work in the industry of agriculture.”

For this recognition, Lemmer receives a $2,500 award and Linn-Mar’s agriscience department receives a $2,500 gift toward the purchase of classroom resources and equipment. In addition, she receives expenses paid trips to NSTA and NAAE 2013 national conventions held in San Antonio and Las Vegas, Nev., respectively.

Finalists for the honor each receive a $500 award and include agriscience teachers Wes Crawford, Sutherlin High School, Sutherlin, Ore.; Robert Bollier, Cheraw High School, Cheraw, S.C.; and Candice Olson, Badger High School, Lake Geneva, Wis. “Congratulation to Wes, Bob and Candice as finalists in a very close competition,” said Miller. “They all exemplify today’s agriscience teacher, using inquiry-based teaching skills to link agriculture and science in one curriculum.”
