Indiana Farm Bureau recently awarded 13 scholarships to incoming or current college students pursuing careers in agriculture.
The scholarships include the Marion Stackhouse Memorial Scholarship, two Collegiate Farm Bureau Scholarships and 10 Carolyn Hegel Memorial Scholarships. The scholarship funds can be applied to tuition, housing, books or other educational expenses.
Arrington Krull, Kosciusko County, is the recipient of this year’s Marion Stackhouse Memorial Scholarship. The $1,000 scholarship is named after the former INFB president, who served from 1976 to 1987. Winners of this scholarship must be INFB members pursuing studies in agriculture. Krull is a graduating senior at Wawasee High School and will attend Purdue University in the fall where she plans to major in farm management and minor in agronomy.
Two $1,000 scholarships are offered to members of any of the Collegiate Farm Bureau chapters at Purdue, Vincennes and Huntington universities. This year, Purdue University sophomores and active Collegiate Farm Bureau members Noah Berning of Allen County and Melanie Hasler of Bartholomew County received the Collegiate Farm Bureau Scholarships.
Additionally, 10 students, one per INFB district, received the $1,000 Carolyn Hegel Memorial Scholarship awards, named after the long-time INFB 2nd vice president, who served the organization for 26 years. Winners must be incoming or current college students pursuing a degree in agriculture and be members of INFB. The winning students are listed below with their home county and high school or college.
"Indiana Farm Bureau is thrilled to support our state’s youth in agriculture through our annual scholarships,” said Isabella Chism, INFB 2nd vice president. “We heard from many passionate students about their love of ag through this process. Indiana agriculture is fortunate to have talented young men and women, like these 13 students, as future leaders in our community.”
