Calling All Farmers

Last year Centura received at $25,000 America’s Farmers Grow Rural Education Grant. This is primarily due to the overwhelming success of farmer nominations within the Centura School District! Centura is eligible to apply for this Grant again. If you nominated Centura last year please do it again! Please share with your friends, family, and neighbors and ask them to nominate Centura. It’s very easy to do. The greater the nominations the greater the chance of success. The grants this year are for $15,000! The deadline for nominations is April 1st! Thank you to Bayer Funds for this amazing opportunity.
