Ag department prepares students for future

Sometimes learning involves “dirty work.”

At least, that’s one requirement in Nelson County High School’s agriculture department, which is preparing students for various career paths related to feeding the public. Classes run the gamut from raising plants in the greenhouse to studying food science and biology.

“Our goal is that every student will graduate the program and be considered career ready,” said ag teacher Jacob Ball.
