Mr. Barry Honeycutt

I am a retired Agriculutre Teacher with 32 years of experience in the school system.  I have taught high school for 21 years and I have worked in School Adminsitration for 8 years as well as my 3 years at Meadow.  I have grown up and still live in Johnston County on our family farm.  We grow almost 30 acres of coastal burmuda hay, own 4 horses, have 50 chickens in egg production, a small produce business as well as deer corn and sun flowers and we are also managing our forest for growth of Loblolly pines that we planted in January of 2017. We have about 3 acres of produce that my daughters have used as a community supported agriculture program as a means of income while students in high school and at NCSU.  I have raised swine and Angus cattle as a youth, and worked with goats, lambs and turkeys in the Johnston County 4-H program as well as FFA programs.  I hope that my experience as a teacher and Agriculturalist will be a positive influence on the lives of our students at Meadow.

I am a big supporter of FFA and what it means to the lives of young people through the FFA.  I always say if it wasnt good I would not encourage my own two daughters to be in it.  They both had very successful FFA careers.  My oldest Carmen was an Agriculture teacher at East Wake High School and is currently at NCSU as the State Director for FFA.  The youngest Katelyn has started her career with Carolina Farmn Credit and is very excited about what is ahead of her.  They both served as the NC Watermelon Queen and enjoyed a year of travel and work representing a valuable NC Commodity.  Ketelyn got elected as the National Watermelon Queen for 2018 and travled all over the country that year working for the advancement of Agriculture.  My wife JoAnne is the Wake County Career and Technical Education Director.  She oversees all of Wake Counties programs including Agriculture programs.  Wake county is currently the 8th largest school district in the US.  I want all of you to know that my family is deeply invested in the future and success of Agriculture in NC.  I hope all of that helps to make me a better teacher for all of my students.  I hope to see our Meadow students share in great successes as well.

    My daily schedule is that I will be at the school until 12 Noon each day.  

     

    I am also coaching Football, Boys Basketball and Track as well as Athletic Director.  All Athletics are currently postponed but we do hope for some type of season this year.  We will post as soon as a schedule is made and presented.  Thank you

     

    The FFA will go along with all of my classes and will also include Spring Semester students.  We will be an affiliate chapter this year which means all students in my class will also be a part of our FFA Chapter and can participate in any FFA activity we have coming up.

  • The 1st week beginning 8/24 I will be gathering from our students some background information and Agriculture interest.  I will also share with them a page of Agriculture Webpages we will use and FFA web sources.  I hope they will be informative for our students.

    I will be posting upcoming FFA events throughout the year.  All Agriculture enrolled students 7th and 8th grade can participate in Fall and Spring FFA activities as well as 6th grade students will be allowed to be in FFA for the entire year.  We will begin holding FFA meetings during the Tribe Time when face to face continues so students should be expecting that this Fall.  We will be working on getting members signed up soon.  Thank you and I look forward to great school year and a very busy FFA group.  Go Indian Blue and Gold FFA
