McKenzie Riley, of Washington C.H., was recently awarded a $1,000 scholarship from the Ohio Cattlemen’s Foundation.
Although Ohio’s cattle industry was unable to celebrate in person at the Ohio Cattlemen’s Association’s (OCA) Annual Meeting and Awards Banquet, the 2021 award winners, scholarship recipients and Top Hand recruiters are still being celebrated for their achievements.
Riley was one of 12 individuals to win the Cattlemen’s Gala Scholarship, which is made possible by the annual Cattlemen’s Gala Celebration and Fundraiser.
OCA will also celebrate the award winners and scholarship recipients via social media. The association’s annual business meeting has been postponed until further notice.
