Ashland County Community Foundation Teacher Mini-Grant
Mrs. Kendra Carnegie was awarded an ACCF Teacher Mini-Grant in the amount of $750 to assist with purchasing a plasma cutter for the STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) program in Vocational Agriculture currently being developed as part of the district's participation in a Straight A/STEM Grant with four other rural school districts.
2016 / 2017
OAAE 25 Year Recipient
Kendra Carnegie was presented with a twenty-five year teaching pin and certificate by the Ohio Association of Agricultural Educators (OAAE) in May 2016. She fulfilled her quarter century all with Loudonville-Perrysville EVSD in Ashland County. She, along with one other Ohio agriculture educator, were the only recipients with that longevity.
Carnegie has had a national proficiency winner, an Ohio Star State Degree winner, a final four competitor in the first National FFA Creed speaking CDE, and several State and American FFA Degree winners, but when asked of her biggest success over the years she said, “I will always feel that my biggest accomplishment is with students on a one-to-one level, making them feel like they are important and can be productive citizens of their communities as adults. I have enjoyed working with high school aged youth and raising them up. Many students don’t see their growth in leadership and Supervised Agricultural Experience (SAE) programs until they look back after a few years and are really proud of what they have accomplished and what they have become. That makes me the proudest.”
Loudonville High School has a single-teacher agri-science department and FFA of about 85 members. Carnegie began her work in the fall of 1991 after completing her Bachelors of Science degree at The Ohio State University.
The mission of OAAE is to positively impact, promote and develop professional interests of agricultural educators for the benefit of their students.
