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 President Perry Livingston said. “This year the Wyoming Farm Bureau Federation will provide $5,500 in college scholarships to children of Farm Bureau members. Additionally, most county Farm Bureaus also offer scholarships.”
The Livingston-King scholarship is valued at $1,500. 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 Buddy and Norma Livingston, the parents of WyFB President Perry Livingston. The scholarship was awarded to Skyler Miller, of Goshen County.
