Greg Curlin earns National Award


Switzerland County High School agriculture teacher Greg Curlin is known all over the area for excellence in his teaching and his program.

Now, the entire nation is learning what the county and the state already knows.

Curlin will travel to Nashville, Tennessee this weekend to attend the National Association of Agricultural Educators (NAAE) National Convention. At the convention, Curlin will receive the Outstanding Service Citation, which recognizes members of the association who have made significant contributions to agricultural education at the state, regional, and national levels. One recipient from each of the six NAAE regions is awarded this citation.

This year Curlin, who is not only a Switzerland County native and a graduate of Switzerland County High School, has taught here in the school system for more than 27 years, bringing innovation and technology to the agriculture program here that have become standards statewide.

Greg and his wife, Becky, live on Tapps Ridge with their sons, Ethan and Levi.
