The Santa Fe AgriLeaders have awarded over 40 scholarships since 2003, when the organization first began supporting youth in agriculture. Part of our AgriLeader´s vision statement is to promote Agricultural leadership and education for youth and adults alike. We take pride in getting the opportunity to read through all of the scholarship applications and seeing the goals, ambitions and plans of these local seniors.
This year we received 15 scholarship applications from three different school districts. Each year we select 3 seniors to receive a $1000 scholarship. When we begin selecting the recipients, the scholarship committee looks for leadership traits, academic excellence and FFA achievements. It isn´t all about the academics, it´s also about work ethic and the ability to work as part of a team. We recognized all of traits in this year´s recipients.Congratulations to:
