Sav-A-Caf Program Awards Wisconsin Teacher with Youth Impact Award
Wisconsin Ag Connection - 08/11/2017
The makers of Sav-A-Caf products have established a new award program this year that recognizes leaders who inspire youth to be passionate about animal agriculture and the first-ever recipient is from Wisconsin. Milk Products announced that Monica
Gahan, an animal science pathway teacher and FFA advisor at Vincent High School in Milwaukee, has earned the inaugural honor.
Gahan initiated an FFA program at Vincent, which gives youth the opportunity to raise and show animals, manage a business to sell farm fresh products at the school's market and learn hands-on agriculture science.
"Gahan's work of bringing agriculture to the urban classroom is instrumental in helping shape the future of today's youth," said Award Coordinator Stefanie Fieck. "She helps bring experiences with animals and agriculture to inner-city youth who wouldn't
otherwise get the opportunity. We are thrilled to present the inaugural award to such a deserving individual."
Monica's FFA program will receive a $2,000 donation from Milk Products, in addition to select Sav-A-Caf branded products for being chosen for the award.
The runners-up for the award were from Missouri and Oklahoma.
