NYSSA – The plaques and banners certifying excellence crowd the lower wall of Chad Cruickshank’s classroom at Nyssa High School.

The plaques stretch from one end of the wall and stop next to his desk, a space of 10 or more feet. The plaques all showcase different achievements related to teaching agriculture.

Each one stands as an example of the values he tries to instill . . .
