David Martens and Sons Recognized by Superintendents Association

9 Apr

David Martens and Sons has been recognized by the BC School Superintendents Association for its role in supporting and hosting Project Agriculture. Project Agriculture is a career awareness opportunity for students throughout the school district. It is an excellent example of how early learning can be personalized based on student interest. Participants receive hands-on exposure to the many aspects and opportunities in agriculture in the Nechako Valley, the second largest forage producing area in British Columbia. For the past 20 years, community members have volunteered their time and resources to showcase agriculture as a valuable resource in our region, and the province.

The Martens family will receive the award on behalf of all those who have contributed to Project Agriculture. It will be presented during a banquet in Vancouver on April 20, 2011. The only other person to receive the award this year is artist Robert Bateman.

The BCSSA Award of Recognition is presented to individuals and organizations for their contributions made to enhance public school education in British Columbia. The contribution may be of a local nature (i.e., to a specific district or districts) or of a general nature which has had a province-wide impact.

Well done!
