GLASGOW, Ky. (AP) -- Western Kentucky University is partnering with Barren County High School to offer college credit to students in the areas of agriculture and chemistry.
Barren County Schools Superintendent Bo Matthews told the Glasgow Daily Times (http://bit.ly/S7Pfol) that the Capstone Scholars in Agriculture Program will help change the shape of agribusiness education and give new opportunities to youth.
Students can begin participating in the program in the spring. They will be allowed to take up to 19 credit hours from the WKU's Ogden College of Science and Engineering.
Principal Steve Riley said the high school is the second one to work out a capstone agreement with WKU "and we're very excited."
The newspaper reports that Barren County is the state's primary producer of cattle, hay, milk and burley tobacco.
