Admiral, There Be Sheep Here!

Two sheep raised by Sulphur Springs High School senior and FFA student Taylor Swinson now on the Sulphur Springs Elementary campus are not only keeping the grass in check but they are also part of an ag curriculum Taylor wrote for the school. The curriculum came about due to Taylor’s Ford Scholar Program. She says the program encourages the scholars to give back to their local communities.

Sulphur Springs Elementary Principal Kristen Monk says the school’s sheep are good lawn mowers and they are interesting to the students. Ms. Monk says five classrooms are studying units of agriculture developed by Taylor based on the sheep. The students feed the sheep and take care of them. They’ll also be naming the boy and girl sheep. Each classroom submitted name ideas. Ms. Monk says the sheep are fun plus students are learning about agriculture.
