North Region Teacher Spotlight    
Temple High School advisor Phillip Cherry is beginning his 30th year of teaching. He grew up in southeast Alabama in a little town called Midland City and attended Dale County High School Mr Cherry holds a B.S. in Ag. Education from Auburn University, and a Masters in Ag. Education from Auburn University. He decided to move to Georgia to teach is because it made financial sense to go ahead and retire from Alabama, felt like he wasn’t finished teaching, and still had a lot to offer, so he chose to come to Georgia to continue his career in a state that is a national model for Agricultural Education and FFA. Some of Mr. Cherry’s goals include continuing to build a good program at Temple High School, be competitive in CDE's and FFA Events, and build a culture of FFA leadership and engagement in the school and community. When asked what his favorite part about being an Ag teacher, Mr. Cherry responded “the relationships that develop between me and the students, especially when I can take a kid who may not be interested in agriculture and expose them to something that makes the light come on.  Seeing these students become interested in agriculture and FFA and possibly entering a career in agriculture makes it all worthwhile."  An interesting fact about Mr. Cherry is that he went to auctioneer school and is a licensed auctioneer.
