High School teacher selected for agricultural educator award

From; The State Department of Education;

Robby Vinzant, an agricultural educator at Lawrence County High School in Moulton, Ala., has been selected as the 2013 Region V Outstanding Agricultural Education Teacher by the National Association of Agricultural Educators (NAAE).

 

Outstanding Agricultural Education Teacher award winners are agricultural educators who are at the pinnacle of their careers, conducting the highest quality agricultural education programs. The award program, sponsored by Toyota as a special project of the National Future Farmers of America (FFA) Foundation, recognizes leadership in civic, community, and professional activities. Award winners are innovators and catalysts for student success in agricultural education.

 

Vinzant, who teaches Agricultural Communications, AgriPower Mechanics, AgriScience 8, and Horticulture, has been a member of the Lawrence County High School faculty since 2009.

 

"I am truly honored and humbled in receiving this award," said Vinzant, who is also thrilled about the accomplishments of Lawrence County High School's FFA Chapter and Poultry Career Development Events (CDE) Team. Both will go on to compete in their respective divisions at the National FFA finals in Louisville in October.

 

"I am most proud for my students, community, and AgriScience and FFA teachers in Alabama," he said.

 

Vinzant competed against Outstanding Agricultural Education Teacher award winners from surrounding states – Tennessee, North Carolina, South Carolina, Mississippi, Florida, and Georgia – for the opportunity to be named the 2013 Region V NAAE Outstanding Agricultural Education Teacher. As regional winner he will receive personal use of a Toyota Tundra pickup truck for two years, an expense-paid trip to attend the 2013 NAAE convention, and an invitation to a special awards dinner held in his honor.

 

NAAE is the professional organization in the United States for agricultural educators.  It provides its members with professional networking and development opportunities, professional liability coverage, and extensive awards and recognition programs.
