Former Charles City High School student, Malayne Meyer, is now Osage’s new Agriculture Education teacher. Meyer is the daughter of Terry and Becky Meyer of Cowell. Meyer teaches six agricultural classes this semester and will be teaching nine classes next semester. She chose Osage since it is close to her hometown of Cowell.
Meyer also loves the environment and the community here. Meyer knew she wanted to become an agricultural education teacher her senior year of high school with the help of her former agricultural and English teacher.
She attended Iowa State University and was influenced by her siblings who are also attending the university, along with the fact that her parents farm. Her parents play a big role in agriculture by farming field crops and being involved in the pig industry, which is her favorite animal. “I showed beef and swine at county fair, and swine at state fair,” said Meyer.
“I took a lot of dual credit classes. My plan for the FFA chapter is to get kids more involved and relate the contests back to classroom work,” said Meyer. “I also plan to do a lot of hands-on activities to help get more involvement,” Meyer said.
She was very involved in FFA and did as many contests as she could. She was the Charles City chapter secretary for two years and also served as the secretary in collegiate FFA. OHS welcomes Miss Meyer.
