LCHS Student Receives $1,000 Grant for Corn Business

December 30, 2021

A $1,000 Plant Systems SAE grant has been awarded to Noah Wiley of Edna, Kansas by Seattle-based software and logistics firm, Barn-To-Door.  Noah owns and operates a sweet corn business that raises, markets and delivers over 1,000 dozen ears of sweet corn to individuals and businesses in Southeast Kansas and Northeast Oklahoma each year.

SAE grants are designed to help FFA members create or expand Supervised Agricultural Experience (SAE) projects, a requirement that all FFA members must complete. An SAE requires FFA members to create and operate an agriculture related business, work at an agriculture-related business or conduct an agricultural research experience. Upon completion, FFA members must submit a comprehensive report regarding their career development experience.

This year 32 different sponsors made 39 different types of SAE Grants available.

Noah Wiley is a member of the Labette County FFA Chapter.  His application was selected from among 1,086 applications nationwide.
