Mr. Cogdill and Ms. Moore Win Conservation Award!

Award Presented During Halftime Of Homecoming Game
2014 Natural Resources Education Award

The Upper Niobrara White NRD board & staff along with Robin Foulk of NRCS is pleased to recognize Jon Cogdill and Mari Beth Moore for their role in reviving CHS Future Farmer’s of America Chapter.  

In collaboration with Chadron High School Principal, Jerry Mack and Superintendent, Dr. Caroline Winchester, Cogdill and Moore have risen to the challenge to bring back the FFA chapter which has been idle for more than 50 years. All involved deserve to be commended for the time commitment and effort necessary to offer additional classes in agriculture and natural resources as well as allowing students the opportunity to compete in Range Judging, Land Judging, Envirothon and many other events including the Nebraska State FFA Convention.

Chadron High is setting the bar high and helping grow the next generation of leaders in Ag for Northwest Nebraska, congratulations to Jon, Mari Beth & CHS for receiving the NRD’s 2014 Conservation Award in Natural Resources Education!
