2 students earn GreenStone scholarships

As part of GreenStone Farm Credit Services’ scholarship program, the cooperative recently selected 22 students to receive either a $2,000 or $1,000 award to assist with education costs. Since 2010, GreenStone has presented more than $175,000 in undergraduate college scholarships to students planning to make a positive impact on the agricultural industry.

“These awardees are examples of the type of individuals who may someday lead the agricultural industry,” said Dave Armstrong, GreenStone’s president and CEO. “GreenStone is committed to supporting young professionals in agriculture by assisting them in furthering their education.”

The 2018 scholarship awardees include Rachael Valeria, of Pulaski, and Colin Wussow, of Cecil.

To be eligible, applicants must reside within GreenStone’s territory, including Michigan and northeast Wisconsin, be a full-time high school graduating senior, have at least a 3.0 grade-point average and plan to study an agriculture-related field. In addition, selected students demonstrate participation and leadership in school, community and agricultural activities.
