Jodi Callahan, Curriculum for Agricultural Science Education (CASE) Teacher at Caroline Career & Technology Center, has been formally recognized by the National FFA Organization as an Honorary American FFA Degree recipient. This award recognizes those teachers who have created high-quality agricultural education programs which inspire and motivate their students to strive for success.
Ms. Callahan has served 10 years at Caroline Career & Technology Center as the CASE (Curriculum for Agricultural Science Education) teacher.
