Crops for College Awards Scholarship

The Marshall-Putnam Farm Bureau Young Leaders group has awarded this year's scholarship to Caroline Downey. Caroline is a senior at Henry-Senachwine High School and the daughter of Jonathan and Rhonda Downey. She is planning to attend the University of Illinois to study Animal Science with a focus on Pre-Veterinary Medicine.

The Crops for College scholarship program is administered and funded by the M-P Farm Bureau Young Leaders group. They hope to encourage the youth in Marshall and Putnam counties to become agricultural leaders in their communities and on a national level. One of its main fundraisers during the year is the annual tractor drive.
