    Carroll County Schools

    Last week, students in Mackenzie Wright’s animal science class were learning about cows, but not from a textbook.

    “Hands-on learning is important,” Wright said. “Dustin Ogburn brought one of his cows to the high school’s campus, so we had him bring it in the classroom.”

    If you want to speak with Mackenzie Wright, you better make an appointment. Before school, after school, during planning period, and during lunch — she is always helping students.
