Texas Corn Producers Association (TCPA) is proud to announce the four winners of its student scholarships.
The student scholarships are offered to students graduating high school and students who are currently attending a Texas college or university.
Hannah Turner, the education director for TCPA, says the association is proud to contribute to these students’ futures and help them pursue a college education.
“For many students, a college education would be out of reach without scholarships,” Turner said. “It is an honor to be able to contribute to the future of students in this way.”
This year, two high school and two college students have each been awarded with $1,000 to assist in their pursuit of higher education.
High School Recipients
Fallon is a student at Bells High School and plans to major in agribusiness at Texas Tech University. She says her future goals include obtaining a degree that will help her to assist in the decision-making, expansion and diversification of her family’s farm and ranch.
Gray is a high school senior who plans to attend West Texas A&M University and major in plant, soil, and crop science and environmental engineering. Gray says he understands water quantity and quality are among the largest issues facing agriculture, and believes it is his job to fight for the industry.
Carver is currently attending Texas A&M University as a freshman animal science major. He says he wants to advocate for the industry that has supported his family for over six generations, and has begun to do so by creating YouTube videos for kids and various other activities.
Huguley is a junior agricultural communications major at Texas Tech. She says her dream is to start a magazine. She hopes this magazine will intertwine those directly involved in agriculture with those outside the industry to inspire an environment where both perspectives work together.
TCPA is proud to award each of these students with scholarships as they follow their passion in the agricultural industry.
“We were so encouraged by the ambitions of the students who applied this year,” Turner said. “The future of our industry is in wonderful hands.”
