Weston-McEwen High School FFA students have found a way to make a difference in their community this holiday season. The group organized a food drive and collected more than 1,000 pounds of food!

According to Ashley Florence, Voc-Ag teacher and FFA advisor, a variety of food including hams, apples and dried goods have been donated. All the food will be given to families in need in the community. FFA teamed up with Wheatland Insurance, and their office staff have also collected food.

In addition, FFA students are making brownies and soup in jars that will be delivered with the Christmas meals next week.

“We have had amazing success with this project this year. I am proud of our students who have embraced the holiday spirit and found a wonderful way to give back to our community,” said Florence.

The Athena-Weston School District has received a $271,628 CTE (Career Technical Education) Revitalization Grant from the Oregon Department of Education, which announced the grants on December 4, 2017.

Athena-Weston was one of 205 Oregon middle schools and high schools to receive the career readiness grants statewide totaling $10.3 million. According to the ODE press release, “The CTE Revitalization Grant funds will serve diverse communities around the state with programs focused on advanced manufacturing, engineering, agricultural science, aviation, robotics, forestry, home construction/renovation and biomedical/health sciences.”

The CTE Revitalization Advisory Committee reviewed 64 applications totaling $21 million in requests and prioritized applications based on geographic diversity, community partnerships, and programs that lead to high-wage, high-demand occupations, especially for historically underserved students.

The 32 grants will leverage additional funds and resources from 582 local business and community partners, a key factor in the success of CTE programs.

According to Laure Quaresma, Athena-Weston School District superintendent, Weston-McEwen High School will utilize the grant funds to expand its CTE programs for welding, fabrication and agriculture including full ADA accessibility.

“We envision a CTE facility that can support additional programs of study and critically, we envision active industry partnerships. We are very excited to receive this important grant, which will increase what we offer to our students in meeting the Manufacturing Curriculum Program of Instruction and Pathway Standards. This redesign will develop students who will be prepared and competitive for careers in local, regional and state high-wage, high-demand careers,” Quaresma said.
