Eddy to be keynote speaker for Clarke County Farm Bureau’s annual meeting
Matthew Eddy, son of Marlin and Sandy Eddy of rural Osceola, graduated from Clarke Community School District and will be the keynote speaker for the 94th Clarke County Farm Bureau annual meeting, Thursday, June 6. The Clarke County Cattlemen will begin serving their hamburgers at 6 p.m. then Eddy will take the floor.
Eddy grew up on a diversified farm south of Osceola. After graduating from Clarke Community High School, he attended Iowa State University majoring in agriculture education – earning a Bachelor of Science degree in 1999 and Master of Science degree in 2008. Currently he is in his 14th year of teaching; first at Indianola and the last 9 years at the Southeast Polk Community School district.
Matthew is a CASE Certified Master Teacher and will hold certifications in AFNR, Animal Science, Plant Science and Biotechnology at the end of the summer. He also does LEAD teacher work by instructing Curriculum Institutes to train other agriculture teachers on the CASE curriculum. He authored both Governor’s STEM Scale-Up grants — securing funding in upwards of $830,000 dollars in year one — for Iowa agriculture programs to participate in adopting the CASE model.
