Six Ohio high school and college students, including a Bloomingburg resident, have been selected to receive scholarships from the Ohio Agricultural Council. The scholarships, each totaling $1,500, were awarded for the 2016-2017 school year.
One of the college student recipients is Katie Frost of Bloomingburg.
The students, each of whom is pursuing a degree in an agricultural-related area of study, were chosen based on their excellent academic record, outstanding leadership qualities, community involvement, and exceptional essay responses.
“The Ohio Agricultural Council is pleased to provide scholarships to help students further their education,” said Jim Chakeres, OAC president. “As one reviewer said, ‘Our future is in good hands and very bright!’ We congratulate these young leaders on being selected to receive scholarships for the 2016-17 school year.”
The high school student recipients are as follows:
· Elizabeth Landis, of Anna, Ohio
· Josie Montoney, of Lancaster, Ohio
· Garrett Stanfield, of Manchester, Ohio
The other college student recipients are as follows:
· Mary Buehler, of Anna, Ohio
· Katie Vorst, of Middle Point, Ohio
The students will be recognized at OAC’s annual Ohio Agricultural Hall of Fame Awards Program on Aug. 5 at the Ohio State Fair in the new Cardinal Building. As part of the award, the scholarship recipients will also receive a one-year complimentary membership in the council.
