MOUNT PULASKI -- This week, the Mount Pulaski High School FFA and the Logan County Ag Scholarship Committee each received $2,500 cash awards for their programs from the America's Farmers Grow Communities, which is sponsored by the Monsanto Corp.

 Local Mount Pulaski farmer Rick Harbarger is this year's Logan County winner.

Harbarger said it was a "no-brainer" with his selection of the Mount Pulaski FFA program (he has two children who have graduated from Mount Pulaski High School) and the Logan County Ag  Scholarship Committee; a division of the Lincoln/Logan County Chamber of Commerce. 

In addition, the Mount Pulaski FFA received a $1,000 cash award from Cottonwood Ag Management.
