DENTON — Jodi Callahan, animal and plant science instructor at the Caroline Career and Technology Center, was recently named the Maryland Agriculture Teachers Association's 2018-19 animal science educator of the year.

Callahan was recognized at the Caroline County Board of Education's meeting Tuesday, Oct. 1, for her achievement.
