Callie McClay.


Cole Herrmann.


For 16 years, the Washington County Agriculture Future of America (AFA) Community Partnership has been very successful… awarding $64,000 to local Washington County students since 2003.
The selection committee recently conducted applicant interviews and announced that there would be two recipients for 2018.
This year Cole Herrmann of Hoyleton and Callie McClay of Oakdale were both selected to receive a Washington County AFA Community Scholarship. In addition to the two scholarships, the selection committee also offered a conference-only sponsorship to Austin Schorfheide from Hoyleton.
All three students graduated this May from Nashville High School and plan to attend the University of Illinois. Cole plans to study Agricultural Engineering, Callie intends to study Agriculture Communications, and Austin intends to study Agricultural Economics and Ag Law.
In addition to the $3,200 academic scholarships for Cole and Callie, all three students will receive an all-expense paid trip to the AFA Leaders Conference in November, and internship opportunities from numerous agriculture corporations throughout the world. This conference is an outstanding experience for any student. The three and a half-day event will help prepare them for a career in agriculture by gaining valuable insight on topics such as personal development, communication skills, careers, and agricultural issues. The students will also gain knowledge on preparing a resume and have the chance to interview with various Ag businesses.
Through the past year, 25 businesses and individuals across Washington County donated the necessary funds to again make this wonderful opportunity available to local students. A big thank you goes out to all our local businesses that have invested in the education of our future leaders!
The Washington County Farm Bureau’s Foundation is the administrator of the AFA Community Scholarship. “We believe that all three of these young men and women will be excellent ambassadors for agriculture,” said Foundation Chairman Jeff Lehde. “They have the opportunity to help this program continue to grow and prosper.”

Regional Office of Education #13 Staff Member Honored

Melanie Andrews.


Melanie Andrews, Assistant Regional Superintendent for Clinton, Jefferson, Marion and Washington Counties, was recently selected to receive two honors for her commitment to education. Andrews, who has worked with the ROE for seven years and has 18 total years in education, received the awards in two separate ceremonies.
On April 21, Andrews was honored by the Illinois Federation of Business Women as an Outstanding Working Woman of Illinois. In order to be considered for this award, a recipient must have demonstrated outstanding qualifications in the areas of professional/career service, community service, political activities, contributions to women’s issues, and contributions beyond the local level in these areas.
On May 10, Andrews was selected as the Illinois Principals Association Kaskaskia Region’s Outstanding Superintendent. Nominated by a panel of her peers, she was chosen for her dedication and commitment to the students, educators, community members, and schools in the four-county ROE region.
Andrews said she considers both awards to be career highlights.
“I am overwhelmed to be chosen to receive these distinguished honors. I have loved every moment I have worked in the field of education, and I consider it an honor to work in this profession alongside so many other dedicated individuals,” she said. “I have to recognize the people who have supported me over the years, including my parents, husband, friends, former co-workers, and current co-workers. I want to thank my boss, Ron Daniels, the current Regional Superintendent, for believing in me and allowing me to continue to grow as an educator in my position at the ROE.”
Andrews also has experience as a high school English teacher, guidance director, elementary principal, and community college instructor. She is currently completing a Doctorate in Curriculum and Instruction from McKendree University.
As for future plans, Andrews would like to continue her role as the Assistant Regional Superintendent and eventually serve as a district superintendent in the area.
She and her husband Ryan reside in Dix.
