Existing Grant-Baker Agriculture Facility

2013-11-11 - ACHS, 526 Indian Drive, Columbia KY - Photo by Ed Waggener. The entrance to the Grant-Baker Agricultural Facility. It's not so well known as it should be. The Ag Department at Adair County High School, hidden away from the meridian throughfare - Indian Drive - on the Adair Schools Campus, is not a household work - perhaps not even in farm homes. The addition of the Adair County ATC/Career Readiness Center Addition should change that. Grant-Baker is named for two iconic Adair County Educators, Norman Grant and Sammy Baker. While the addition is not a part of the Agriculture Department, it does provide courses formerly offered only or mostly to FFA students and will free time formerly allocated to welding for other Ag subjects. Two new ATC Center faculty members' salaries will be paid for by the Lake Cumberland Area Technial Center, as will administrative services of Principal Jeff Adams. "Everyone is coming out a winner with the new satellite vocational center," Superintendent Alan W. Reed said. The addition will be built in an area beside the exhaust ventilator domes, left in the photo. "In the future," Supt. Reed said, "we'll continue to take steps to give our Agricultural Facilities entrances the prominence they deserves, with improved signage and landscaping - and other aesthetic touches." Those touches are being added to the campus already, as signage is upgraded at a pace the budget allows.
