KCW awards scholarships to Kansas students

KCW awards scholarships to Kansas students

By Scout Nelson

Kansas CattleWomen (KCW), in collaboration with the Kansas Livestock Foundation (KLF), has awarded $1,000 scholarships to eight promising students dedicated to advancing their education in fields related to agriculture.

This educational support stems from the proceeds of the KCW Silent Auction, an annual highlight at the Kansas Livestock Association (KLA) Convention.

To qualify for this scholarship, candidates must be Kansas high school graduates who are attending an in-state community college or university.

The chosen fields of study among the recipients include dietetics, food safety, agriculture, and related areas, highlighting the diverse opportunities within the agricultural sector.

This year, most scholarships were awarded to students enrolling at Kansas State University. Among them is Karlie Albright from Delia, set to continue her studies in agricultural education as a junior.

Freshman Bethany DeDonder of Admire will delve into agricultural communications and journalism. Brooke Evans from Bucklin and Erin Livingston of Ottawa are both entering as freshmen with a focus on animal sciences and industry.

Sydney Heller of Hunter and Hannah Macke from Baileyville are pursuing agribusiness, with Heller starting her freshman year and Macke entering her senior year. Avery Ziegler of WaKeeney will also start her freshman year studying animal sciences and industry.

Kiley Whipple from Kalvesta received a scholarship. She is preparing for her senior year at Fort Hays State University, where she will study agricultural education.

These scholarships not only support the educational endeavors of these students but also invest in the future of agriculture in Kansas, ensuring that the next generation is equipped to uphold and evolve the industry.
