GHEC Agriculture/FFA


Hello all! My name is McKenzie Wagelie. I'm currently in my 3rd year as an agriculture teacher and 2nd year at GHEC. I graduated from SDSU with my undergrad degree in Animal Science. I also just received my Masters Degree in Agriculture Education from SDSU in Spring 2023. Besides being a teacher at GHEC I am also the GHEC FFA advisor and JH volleyball coach.

A little background about me is I am originally from Sleepy Eye, MN and graduated from Sleepy Eye Public in 2018. I currently live in Lewisville on a hobby farm with my husband Austin and son Emmett. We have many animals including 3 horses, 2 dogs, and 6 cats. In my free time I enjoy showing horses and spending time with family and friends. I also enjoy traveling when I find time!

I love working with kids in the classroom and really focus on giving students real life practice and hands-on learning. My classes are very project based learning which gives students a realistic way to apply what they learned for assessments.

The GHEC FFA program is in its 4th year as a FFA chapter. We are super excited to be growing and see involvement increase from our FFA members. We are officially affiliated which mean any student 7-12 who takes an Ag class is in FFA. There are no dues as we want everyone to have an equal opportunity to participate in FFA

Please follow the GHEC FFA Facebook page and GHEC FFA Instagram to stay up to date on what the student are up to and events we have planned!
