My name is Mr. Casey McCausland, and I currently teach Physical Science, Organic Chemistry, Chemistry, and College Now General Chemistry courses for Russell-Tyler-Ruthton Public (RTR) School District in rural, SW Minnesota. I work collaboratively with Southwest Minnesota State University Chemistry Department and their Concurrent Enrollment program to offer our students the opportunity to earn college credits in chemistry while attending RTR. I currently live in Brookings, SD, where my wife is the director of the South Dakota Agricultural Heritage Museum which is located on the South Dakota State University campus.
NSHSS is always looking to find ways to support our network of educators, especially those who are constantly looking to support their students. To help offset the financial burden, NSHSS is awarding twelve (12) high school educators $500 grants to help provide additional opportunities to their students and classrooms.
