Levelland ISD and Levelland High School was awarded the grant through America’s Farmers Grow rural education, a program that helps farmers support their local rural public school districts.  The funds will be used to purchase a plasma camera and cutter to be used at Levelland High School.  Since 2011 this program has given over $16 million to rural school districts to enhance math and science education.

America’s Farmers Grow Rural Education offers farmers the opportunity to nominate rural public school districts to compete for a merit based grant of $10,000 and $25,000.  A number of local farmers nominated Levelland ISD and Levelland High School for the award, allowing the district to submit an application for the grant.  Those farmers include:  Larry and Linda King, Hershell Hill, Ronny Alexander, Greg Methvin, Bill Price, George Childress, Don Duff, David Durham, Larry Witt, Rusty Gibson, Austin Pinkert, Will Pinkert, Mark Pinkert, Brad Durham, Roger Jeffcoat, Paul Isaacs, and Bobby Rackler.
