ACTE Announces Kansas Agriculture Education Instructor as National Award Finalist

ALEXANDRIA, VA—Today, the Association for Career and Technical Education (ACTE) announced Kelly Hoelting, Agriculture Education Instructor of Mission Valley USD #330 in Eskridge, Kansas, as the recipient of the 2017 ACTE Region V Carl Perkins Community Service Award. This award recognizes individuals who have used CTE to make a significant impact on their community and demonstrated leadership in programs and activities that promote student involvement in community service. 

“Kelly Hoelting is an advocate for calculated, progressive change,” says Dustin Kuntz, Vice-President of Harveyville Seed Co. and Mayor of Harveyville. In Hoelting’s 15 years as an instructor at Mission Valley High School in Eskridge, Kansas, she has ushered the agricultural education program through several transitions to maintain the program’s legacy of success. Under Hoelting’s leadership, the program tripled enrollment in a 10-year period, which justified the hiring of a second agriculture instructor in 2014 and further expanded the number of CTE offerings available at the school. Hoelting’s FFA chapter has grown and is the largest student organization at Mission Valley with 97 students (representing 60% of total enrollment). Community service is a major focus of the agricultural education program and FFA chapter. In 2016, Hoelting’s FFA members volunteered over 500 hours of community service and added two new major service projects with the Community Thanksgiving Meal and Community-Wide clean-up. Other highlights of the FFA chapter’s service work include a Community Blood Drive, Family Trap Shoots, Alternative Day Food & Wildlife Presentations, and Hunter Safety Education.

Through the Kansas Association of Agricultural Educators, Hoelting has taken an active role as a mentor for new teachers, and her program is regularly observed by students from Kansas State University as part of Mission Valley’s standing as a professional development school for teachers in training. Hoelting’s reputation as a leader extends outside Kansas: she was invited to serve on the National cPass Comprehensive Agriculture Exam development team where she helped write national agricultural education standards. Hoelting has also made giving back to the community a major aspect of her tenure at Mission Valley. Her personal contributions have included starting a local FFA alumni group, pursuing grants to build a community garden and local wildlife food plots, and working to bring a nature trail to the school. Recently, Hoelting organized an auction to raise over $4,000 in scholarships for seniors in the agricultural education program.

Hoelting is one of five finalists for the 2018 national title. The national winner will be announced at the ACTE Awards Banquet, a dinner and award presentation recognizing the best CTE educators in the country. The event will take place on Wednesday evening, December 6, during ACTE’s CareerTech VISION 2017 in Nashville, Tennessee. The Awards Banquet is sponsored by Express Employment Professionals, the US Army, CareerSafe, Stratasys, and International Baccalaureate.

When do we cancel school because of Weather???

posted Dec 6, 2016, 6:22 AM by Jeannie Browning

Parents & Patrons:

We are quickly approaching that time of year when the possibility of school cancellations increase due to adverse winter conditions.  The decision to cancel school is always carefully examined before the final decision is made.  School district officials directly check and monitor roadway conditions, they contact local agencies {KDOT, Wab. Co. Transportation Dept., local law enforcement, etc..} for road conditions reports, keep updated from local weather reports as to current & future weather conditions, and communicate with other local school districts.

USD 330 Mission Valley is approximately 400 square miles with land in four counties.  Due to the large area that the district covers; the road and weather conditions can vary greatly across the district.  Roads may be treacherous in one area of the district and safe in other areas, however, the determination for school closure is based off of the area that is impacted the most.  We recognize the fact that cancelling school can create challenges for parents who need to find care for their child(ren), however, the safety of the students will come first.

If a decision cannot be made the night before then it is our goal to have a decision made in the mornings by 5:30 a.m.   If adverse weather occurs during the school day and school needs to be dismissed early we will send out a notification at least 1 hour before dismissal.  It is important to make sure that your child’s contact information is updated so that we have the most recent information.

If it is decided to cancel school we will immediately send an automated call through School Messenger. School closure information will also be sent to local t.v. and radio stations, as well as, USD 330 district website, Facebook, and Twitter. School closure information will be broadcasted on the following:  (TV Stations:  Channels 13, 27, and 49) (Radio Stations: 580 WIBW-AM, 104.9 FM, 94.5 Country, Country Legends 106.9).

ALL SCHOOL ACTIVITIES will be cancelled or postponed when school is closed for dangerous road conditions, except for unique situations authorized by the district office.

We greatly appreciate your continued patience and understanding when school cancellation is required.

Bill Clark, Superintendent
