This year, we welcome the new vocational agriculture teacher, Etta Moyer, to our Barnesville family. Moyer is a graduate from The Ohio State University and taught for one year at Carrollton before she was given a job here at Barnesville High School. She majored in pre-veterinary and decided to use her knowledge to teach others who may not know much about agriculture.

During the interview process, she was pleasantly surprised to see our superintendent because it showed her how much our school district cares about the people who are hired to work with the students. She was very excited to have been given the job and loves the feeling of community that our school gives her. Though school has only been in session for a few weeks, Moyer says that the staff and students are very nice and well-behaved, and she loved attending the fair to watch some of her students show their animals that they worked so hard on.

In her spare time, she loves farming sheep, cows, and goats with her family. She also enjoys fishing whenever she has time. We would like to congratulate her on her recent marriage and wish her good luck on her first year at BHS and for many years to come. Go Rocks!
