Owens Community College Students Awarded Agribusiness Scholarships

Eight Owens Community College students have been awarded Agribusiness scholarships for the 2001-2002 academic year.

Scholarship recipients were selected by personal interviews with representatives from the donor organizations in January. The donor organizations contributing to the Agribusiness Scholarship program this year are The Andersons' Foundation, Ohio Agribusiness Association, Greenleaf Association and the Seaway Chapter of the Grain Elevator and Processing Society.

"This year, the donor organizations awarded $7,100 in scholarships to the eight recipients," said Glenn Abke, Owens professor, Agribusiness Management Technology. "I think the involvement by these organizations speaks very highly of the agribusiness industry and their support of education and the Owens Agribusiness program."
