Four area students will have an extra $1,000 in support for college tuition as winners of Iowa Farm Bureau Scholarships. Six recipients were selected for the scholarships from each of the Iowa Farm Bureau Federation’s nine districts based on the essays submitted that showcased the contributions they expect to make in agriculture and the rural community. Their academic achievement, financial need, community and extracurricular involvement and letters of recommendation were also factors in the selection process. “Farm Bureau believes that by investing in our youth, we are investing in the future of Iowa,” says Community Resources Director, Barb Lykins. “These scholarships help students pursue their dreams, and so many of those career aspirations include agriculture or support jobs in rural communities here in Iowa.” Area recipients include: Christopher Gehling who is the son of Pat and Sue Gehling of Breda and is enrolled at Iowa State University; Sadie Schultes, the daughter of George Schultes and Connie Jessen of Exira and enrolled at Iowa State University; Jessica Gunderson, the daughter of Timothy and Mary Gunderson of Kiron and attending South Dakota State University; and Maggie Steinkamp, who is the daughter of Doug and Julie Steinkamp of Wall Lake and is enrolled at South Dakota State University.
