Ridgemont Ag teacher and Hardin County Ag Hall of Fame member Stephanie Jolliff has been awarded the Region 4 Outstanding Teacher of the Year award.
Mrs. Jolliff is a graduate of Ohio State and has been teaching at Ridgemont Schools for the last years. She was recently awarded the Region Four Outstanding Teacher at the 90th National FFA Convention held in Indianapolis, Indiana. In an interview with Thomas Shaw from the National FFA, Stephanie tells that being raised on a rural farm and influence from family lead her to be a Ag teacher.
“I grew up on a rural farm in Morrow county and had a family member who was an Ag teacher who supported my interest. I saw that kids in Ag knew what they wanted to do in life and had a direction. I looked at the opportunity to make a difference in people's lives. And I wanted to make the community a better place.” Jolliff said.
