Co-Alliance Cooperative, Inc. recently announced the 40 recipients of its $1,000 scholarship program. The scholarships were awarded to high school seniors planning to study agriculture in college and be involved in agriculture in their local community. The winners were selected through the legacy Co-Alliance Solutions Scholarship program and the legacy Harvest Land Co-Op Agricultural Scholarship program.
This is the 14th consecutive year the company has made such a contribution to the youth in its trade territory.
In Marshall County, Cameron Markley and Jack McIntire, seniors at Argos Jr./Sr. High School were awarded the scholarships.
CEO Kevin Still noted the importance of investing in the local community and rural youth, “These students show tremendous potential. We anticipate a very bright future for these young people and as an organization with cooperative roots it is our duty to support the next generation of agriculture.”
Applicants were selected based on academic performance, extra-curricular involvement, and an essay where they had the chance to explain their passion for agriculture and why they’ve chosen it as an area of collegiate study.
