Mr. Jeff Hicken (1974-2021) played a pivotal role in bringing the first modern, automated greenhouse to the Sauk Prairie School District. After its completion, Mr. Hicken accepted the position of Agriculture Food and Natural Resources Education Consultant and State FFA Advisor at the Department of Public Instruction. Although he was never able to formally educate students in this space, it was his vision that helped the agricultural education program flourish at Sauk Prairie. After the program outgrew the current greenhouse, Mr. Hicken came to mind often as the new space was being designed. The new state-of-the-art Jeff Hicken Horticultural Learning Center will serve students for years to come and will be a reminder of the influence educators, like Mr. Hicken, have in our community.
