River Valley AgCredit offering scholarships

Staff report

MAYFIELD -- River Valley AgCredit will award five scholarships for the 2017-2018 school year for western Kentucky and five scholarships for eastern Tennessee.

A $1,500 scholarship will be awarded to three incoming freshmen enrolled in an agricultural curriculum at an accredited university in each area. In addition, a $1,500 scholarship will be awarded to two students currently enrolled in an agricultural curriculum at an accredited university in each area.

A committee has the authority to designate the five $1,500 scholarships as they deem necessary. In western Kentucky, one of these scholarships will be named the "Eldon Heathcott" Scholarship and will require the applicant be attending Murray State University. Another scholarship will be named the "David Leonard" Memorial Scholarship.

To be eligible for either scholarship, the applicant must be an immediate family member (son or daughter) of a current member of River Valley AgCredit. Applicants cannot be an immediate family member of an employee or director.

Each award will be a one-time scholarship. The scholarship is to be used to pay education-related expenses and will be issued in the form of a check payable to the individual. Students may apply every year they are eligible.

Applications must be received at the River Valley AgCredit Administrative Office on or before April 17. The address is River Valley AgCredit, ATTENTION: Jessica Johnson, 408 E. Broadway, Mayfield, KY 42066.

The selection committee will consist of current board members of River Valley AgCredit. Other individuals designated by the CEO of River Valley can also serve. They will review all applications and choose semifinalists (the number is dependent upon the number of eligible applications received.) The committee will interview semifinalists. They will choose the five recipients. The process will be completed by May 15.
