Investing in young individuals aspiring to enhance the future of the agricultural industry is an essential part of sustaining the industry’s success. GreenStone is proud to support the future success of youth in agriculture by awarding college scholarships to graduating high school seniors. The recipients this year have demonstrated academic integrity, commitment to a variety of extracurricular activities, leadership in their communities, and passion for the agricultural industry. GreenStone feels honored to be a part of the journey toward achieving their goals.
Once again, GreenStone has awarded $40,000 in scholarships to incoming college freshman, with $2,000 going to students pursuing a four-year degree and $1,000 to students pursuing a two-year degree. Since 2010, GreenStone has presented nearly $300,000 in college scholarships to students who desire to make a positive impact on the agriculture industry.
Kayla Dufek, one of the 20 scholarship recipients this year, states, “I want to thank GreenStone Farm Credit Services for their involvement not only in agriculture, but in all aspects of communities as well. I am grateful to be chosen as a recipient of this scholarship.”
