Cultivating future agricultural leaders by awarding scholarships
toward their education is one of the committee's top
In the 14-year history of the Ag Day Scholarship Breakfast,
$77,000 in scholarships has been awarded to deserving local
students. Any high school senior or current college student from
Logan County planning to or currently pursuing an education in an
agriculture-related field is encouraged to apply. The scholarship
is designed for students who have the intention to return to Logan
County as leaders in the ag field.
Ag scholarships are made possible due to generous sponsorships
from community businesses. Local businesses partner to
support and sustain agriculture awareness in the community. The chamber's Ag Day Scholarship Breakfast is a great networking
opportunity for the ag and business community to come together.
One of the most important accomplishments of this event is the
awarding of scholarships to our future agricultural leaders. The
scholarship recipients will be announced during the 14th annual
Logan County Ag Day Scholarship Breakfast on March 21 at 7 a.m. at Lincoln Christian University's Laughlin Center.
