We are proud to welcome these scholars to the Farm Credit family. They represent the best of the best in terms of academic record and leadership qualities as well as community and school involvement

Forty-three students from Kentucky, Ohio, Indiana and Tennessee have earned scholarships awarded by agriculture lender Farm Credit Services of Mid-America (FCS). The recipients, who received scholarships valued at $1,000 and $1,500, will be honored during Farm Credit’s annual Customer Appreciation Events which start in mid-June and run through mid-September.

“We are proud to welcome these scholars to the Farm Credit family. They represent the best of the best in terms of academic record and leadership qualities as well as community and school involvement,” said Ed Yanos, chair of the board of directors. “Even more gratifying is the passion they exhibit for agriculture. In reading their stories, there’s a common thread. From witnessing the birth of a baby cow, to being humbled by support of their community after seeing the family farm flattened by a tornado, they want – and have every reason – to make agriculture stronger and better than ever. I’m proud that Farm Credit can be a part of their journey.”
