Wyoming Farm Bureau awards nine college scholarships
Laramie--The Wyoming Farm Bureau Federation recently awarded nine college scholarships to the children of Farm Bureau members.
“Providing opportunities for our members’ children to receive a college education is what the Farm Bureau scholarship program is about,” Wyoming Farm Bureau Federation President Perry Livingston said. “$5,500 is awarded at the state level. Add that to county Farm Bureau scholarships around the state and roughly $20,000 is awarded each year to children of Farm Bureau members in Wyoming. We are proud to support our youth.”
The Livingston-King scholarship is valued at $1,000. The scholarship is given in honor of former state presidents of the Wyoming Farm Bureau Federation Herbert D. Livingston and H.J. King; as well as Norma Livingston, the mother of WyFB President Perry Livingston. The scholarship was awarded to Coleman Hayduk, of Uinta County. Coleman is the son of Stewart Hayduk and Kristine Hayduk of Evanston.
The five Wyoming Farm Bureau Federation scholarships are $500 each. The recipients are: Kaitlyn Livingston, of Newcastle, the daughter of Doug and Peggy Livingston; Cortney Robertson, of Pine Bluffs, the daughter of Gary and Angie Robertson; Kaitlyn Pfister, of Lusk, the daughter of Ronda Pfister and the late Jack Pfister; Carolyn Hageman, of Ft. Laramie, the daughter of Hugh and Lee Hageman; and Taylor Kinchen, of Lusk, the son of John and Tana Kinchen.
The three continuing education scholarships are also $500 each. The continuing education scholarship recipients must submit at least two years of college transcripts. The recipients are: Cassie Henry, of Robertson, the daughter of William and Jenese Henry; Brittany Hamilton, of Osage, the daughter of Monte and Francie Hamilton; and Tucker Hamilton, of Osage, the son of Monte and Francie Hamilton.
Scholarship applications are due March 1 each year and are available at local county Farm Bureau offices or at www.wyfb.org
“Congratulations to each of the recipients,” Livingston concluded. “We wish them the best in their continued education endeavors.”
