Designed to increase student understanding of agriculture, the McLean County Extension Foundation sponsors the grant in the name of John Maitland, in honor of the retired Illinois State Senator, a life-long friend of education, and a McLean County farmer. Ms. Reid will use the funds to form an outdoor classroom in the existing butterfly garden, complete with an outdoor chalkboard and stepping stones that students will create, which will double as seats. Congratulations, Ms. Reid!
