NORMAL (Heart of Illinois ABC) - “I’m stunned I did not expect this when I got to work.”

That was the instant reaction from Normal West Ag teacher Patrick Bane when we stopped by his classroom.

“I’m tickled to death to have this happen. I’m a little embarrassed but it’s definitely an honor.”

Mr. Bane teaches a number of courses at various grade levels, his passion for agricscince on display.

“Here at Normal West we have a tremendous animal science pathway, so this class is actually dual credit with Heartland Community College, they’re getting four of college credit.”

He’s also the advisor for Future Farmers of America at Normal West.

“We have a lot of leadership programs here that we’re doing with FFA.”

Adding the grant money will be a big helpas programs continue to expand.

“That’s why we do what we do to make an impact on the community,” “We’ve got $750 worth of registration sitting there for a conference coming up, we’ll fine ways to put the money to use.”
