On December 20, the Kirchner family and their multiple Nashville based businesses presented the Nashville FFA Chapter with a contribution check for $15,000 for the specific use of completing the Nashville FFA Greenhouse Project.

The donation was the initial kickoff of the family’s businesses “Let’s get Growing” initiative. Andy Kirchner, President of NOTS Logistics stated, “We are excited to offer this contribution to the Nashville FFA and Nashville Community High School.” The Kirchner family’s initiative calls for investment into our local schools, organizations and our community, knowing that it makes sense to focus on “growth”. The Nashville FFA Greenhouse Project will be used to educate students as to how to “grow” Agricultural commodities. This type of education can help towards an outlook of investment and “Growth”.

Kirchner says, “We know and realize the impact the Agricultural Industry has on Nashville, Illinois. Contributing to the Nashville FFA Greenhouse Project is our way of assisting with the education of the next generation of Agricultural Leaders. We strongly believe that investing in this manner will allow for today’s youth to lead tomorrow’s successes. NCHS and the Nashville FFA will be able to use the Greenhouse Project to lead tomorrow’s successes. NCHS and the Nashville FFA will be able to use the Greenhouse Project to further the classroom education of those enrolled in the many currently offered Agricultural related courses.”

The Kirchner family has been involved with the Agricultural community for many years and expressed how fortunate they have been to have had those opportunities. They will continue to strengthen the many Agricultural partnerships they have established. Their goal is to invest and partner with others to keep the Nashville Agricultural community successful and growing.

The Kirchner family stated that they look forward to working with NCHS, Nashville FFA Advisor, Julie Bond-Ledford, and the Nashville FFA membership on this Greenhouse Project. They also extend a very sincere “Thank you” to all others who have contributed to this project as well.
