Three Northwest students named GROWMARK scholars
Three Northwest Missouri State University students are among 35 college students from Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kentucky, Missouri, Nebraska, and Wisconsin who will continue their education with the help of GROWMARK-sponsored scholarships aimed at promoting higher education in agriculture and business.
Northwest students receiving the scholarship are:
- Blake Anderson, an agriculture education major who is the son of Howard and Deanna Anderson of Nodaway, Iowa
- Emily Anderson, an agriculture business major who is the daughter of Robert and Elaine Anderson of California, Mo.
- Kacie Wright, an agriculture business major who is daughter of Tom and Dori Wright of Tuscumbia
GROWMARK has supported college students with scholarships since the early 1960s. This year, they were awarded to students majoring in agriculture or accounting at 15 universities and colleges. Each educational institution is responsible for the selection process and awarding scholarships. University scholarship recipients are honored each year at the GROWMARK Annual Meeting in Chicago.
“GROWMARK invests more than $45,500 annually on scholarships. We’re investing today for a return tomorrow,” said Steve German, GROWMARK member employment manager. “There’s a need for agriculture businesses to support formal education to strengthen agriculture.”
