Shelley Wall, Library Media Specialist for Will Rogers Elementary School in Shawnee, was one of five educators honored during the Flapjack Fundraiser for the Bushels for Books program on Saturday, November 12, at the Cox Convention Center in Oklahoma City.
During the event, the Oklahoma Farming and Ranching Foundation and the Oklahoma Farm Bureau Young Farmers and Ranchers awarded five Oklahoma educators with bushel baskets of accurate agriculture books to be used in their classrooms and school libraries.
“We are thrilled to award these outstanding educators with resources to help them include agriculture in their classroom curriculum,” said Jeramy Rich, Oklahoma Farming and Ranching Foundation president.
Ms. Wall will use the books in the school library to help students to learn the processes of how food gets to their tables and career opportunities available in agriculture.
