  Jackson-Empower  
  Micah Story  
     
  Micah Story grew up in Buena Vista, Ga which is a small town near Columbus and attended Tri-County High School. Marion-Schley-Webster is where Micah first experienced agriculture, its importance and how to appreciate a good farm experience. The classes that got Mr. Story’s interest were horticulture, Industrial Arts and Science. The poultry and timber industry provided a lot of jobs for people in Marion County and provided Mr. Story with the opportunity to gain supervised ag experience in these areas. His SAE involved preparing pine seeds for planting and operating harvesting equipment. When President Jimmy and Roslyn Carter returned to Plains, their daughter Amy and Mr. Story were in his dad’s science class. Her time at Tri-County brought some unique experiences to the school. Mr. Story decided to pursue a career in education and had a strong interest in science at Fort Valley State University. He earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Agronomy and later earned a Masters in Education as well as an Educational Specialists degree from the University of Georgia. Mr. Story’s agriculture career began as a UGA County Extension Agent in Walton and Worth counties. Eventually he would become the agriculture teacher at East Jackson Middle School and teach there for 16 years, utilizing one of the first modular concepts in teaching agriculture technology in the state. Mr. Story then taught at Jackson County High School for 11 years and is currently teaching at the Empower College and Career Center. In 2001 Mr. Story was named Teacher of the Year and System Teacher of the Year. When asked what his favorite part of being an Ag. Teacher is Mr. Story states: “Dr. Ray Herren told us that we don’t teach agriculture, but we use agriculture to teach kids. My favorite part of being an agriculture teacher is that I get to use relevant material, hands-on experiences to hold their attention and help kids engaged until they know for sure what their call and purpose in life is. I get 4 years to help mold, guide, shape and encourage and nurture students until they become all they were created to be.” Mr. Story continues to strive to do all he can to provide great learning opportunities for his students every day and states that he is “blessed to work with great ag teachers who motivate and challenge me to grow and become a better ag teacher to help students fulfill their call in life and to make our community a better place for people to live and work.”
