Six Ohio high school and college students have been selected to receive scholarships from the Ohio Ag Council. The scholarships, each totaling $1,500, were awarded for the 2015-2016 school year.
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. We recognize that the future of the farming community lies with the next generation of agriculture leaders,” said Jenny Hubble, OAC president. “We congratulate these young leaders on being selected to receive scholarships for the 2015-16 school year.”
The high school student recipients and their hometowns are:
• Abby Motter, Mansfield
• Mikayla Storck, New Carlisle
• Emily Kreinbrink, Leipsic
The college student recipients and their hometowns are:
