WCH resident selected for MACA Young Leader Scholarship Program


St. Louis, MO — The Mid America CropLife Association (MACA) Board of Directors selected nine college students to participate in the MACA Young Leader Scholarship Program (YLSP) — including one from Washington Court House.

Lahni Stachler is a student at North Dakota State University. Stachler is majoring in Crop and Weed Sciences with a minor in Agribusiness and Agricultural Systems Management. Her internship this summer will be at BASF in Adams, ND. She will graduate in May 2025.

This is the 11th year for the program, which is designed to expose future agriculturalists to the crop protection industry and potential career opportunities. Recipients receive financial compensation, additional training for finding a job plus the opportunity to network with MACA members. MACA members benefit by developing a talent pool of future industry leaders and through the heightened awareness of MACA within the participating universities.

The recipients’ educational focus is agriculture, enrolled at one of the land-grant universities in the MACA region and have secured a 2023 summer internship related to agriculture, preferably within the crop protection industry. Additionally, the selected recipients will attend the MACA Annual Meeting Sept. 5-7 in Indianapolis, Indiana and speak about their internship experience and participate in the meeting with MACA members. After completing the summer internship, the scholarship recipients receive a $2,000 scholarship to assist with their tuition expenses.
