The garden at Beaver Dam Elementary is the first school garden to be given the Ready, Set, Grow designation. Agriculture Commissioner, James Comer, presented Mrs. Ginger Tichenor with a certificate honoring the school's efforts. Comer then turned his attention to Mrs. Becky Gaither, recognizing her as an honorary Commissioner of Agriculture for her dedication to the garden project. BDES was also presented with two grants from the Aurthur W. Perdue Foundation ($5,000) and the Modern Woodmen of America ($1,000).
