The Purdue University agricultural education program has placed a student-teacher with Blake Hackman, the agricultural science and business instructor at Brownstown Central High School.
Crawfordsville native Ashley Kincaid is teaching landscape management, introduction to agriculture and agricultural business management.
She is majoring in youth development in agricultural education with plans to become an agriculture teacher.
“I want to be an agriculture teacher because my teachers inspired and pushed me to be the best I could be. I aspire to have a lasting impact on my students,” she said.
Kincaid also is involved in Brownstown Central FFA activities, including coaching a soils team, supervising and helping with football concessions and taking students to district kickoff.
She will complete her student teaching Nov. 4. After completing college, she will have a job teaching the agriculture class at Owen Valley High School in Spencer.
