MEDIA: Jamestown News spotlights Ragsdale HS CFPP sponsored by Sonya Hamilton – State Farm

In the Wednesday, October 26th edition of Jamestown News, Ragsdale High School’s 2016-2017 Classroom to Food Pantry Pipeline (CFPP) was featured.

Sponsored by Sonya Hamilton of State Farm, the CFPP was setup to benefit Parkwood Baptist Church’s Hand to Hand Food Pantry with monthly deliveries of nutritious greens grown in class by 1st & 2nd Block SciVis students.

“This year, Pendrak expanded the Classroom to Food Pantry Pipeline project to both her Science Visualization classes from just one last year. She plans to have the two classes compete against each other to see who can grow the most food based on weight. The CFPP will be providing weight data for students to use in the statistics and charting part of her SciVis curriculum.”
