Congratulations on your America's Farmers Grow Rural Education Grant Award!

Congratulations are in order for Watertown High School and Science teacher Melissa Fregoe-Cronk.

Your school district has been selected to receive a $10,000.00 grant for Grow With The Flow at Watertown City High School through America's Farmers Grow Rural Education, sponsored by the Monsanto Fund. Growing the next generation is very important to farmers, and they realize that you are an integral part of that process.  To show their appreciation, farmers in your area nominated you to receive this grant. After your application was submitted, it was reviewed first by math and science teachers, then by the America's Farmers Grow Rural Education Farmer Advisory Council, a group of 29 prominent farmers from across the country. The Advisory Council was impressed with your dedication to your students and your innovative ideas for improving their educational experiences.
