Carroll County High School agriculture teacher Joe Vessels recently was awarded the Kentucky Department of Conservation Teacher of the Year.

Vessels, originally a Payneville native from Meade County, began working in Carroll County in 2007 after he was offered the agriculture teacher’s job at the high school. He said farming was engrained in him at an early age, when he lived with his parents and five brothers and sisters on a corn and soybean farm.
