Congratulations to the students and faculty of the Chicago High School for Agricultural Sciences for their outstanding work in creating “Reinventing the Wheel,” their entry in the 12th Annual Chicago Flower & Garden Show which is continuing at Navy Pier through Sunday, March 19th.

For the first time in its participation in the Show, CHSAS was awarded the Gold Medal in the Horticulture Division, the highest award given in this prestigious competition. The Medal was made possible by a total team effort under the leadership of Principal David Gilligan, Dr. Robert Bush, Scott Nelson and Julie Reynolds and the CHSAS students who designed, built and cultivated the garden,

Over the nine day run of the Chicago Flower & Garden Show, ten of thousands of people will see the great work of the students at CHSAS and see the great opportunities in agricultural education in Chicago. This is the third year that the Ag Mech Tech students under the direction of Dr. Bush and the Horticulture students under the direction of Mrs. Reynolds and Mr. Nelson have worked together to create one the premiere gardens in the show. It is great to see the students and school recognized with gold!
