WEST JEFFERSON-Laci Poe, a freshman Horticulture 1 student at Ashe County High School, was named the school’s Agriculture Education Student of the Month for October.
That’s according to a release issued by the school and Ashe County Farm Bureau, which sponsors the award.
Poe maintains an ‘A’ average – one of the highest grades in the class – and has shown an interest in plant identification. She’s consistently scored a 100 or higher on each weekly plant ID quiz.
“Her high grades are not the only reason for being chosen as Agriculture Education student of the month,” according to the release. “She has also been chosen because of her interest in agriculture, hard work, leadership ability and respect of herself and those around her.”
Poe’s future goals include attending college and majoring in either biolog, botany or horticulture or a combination of the three.
