Stearns County Corn Growers award $1,000 scholarship

Stearns County Corn Growers Association, a division of the Minnesota Corn Growers Association (MCGA), has congratulated Blake Bromenshenkel on being the recipient of its $1,000 2011-2012 agriculture scholarship.

Blake is the son of Wayne and Pat Bromenshenkel of Sauk Centre, and will be studying farm operation and management at Ridgewater College in Willmar.

Each year, the association awards up to four  $1,000 scholarships to qualifying students who are pursuing degrees in agriculture. The program is sponsored by the National Corn Growers Association.

This scholarship can be used by college students at all levels — undergrads, graduates or students going back for a higher degree. The infrastructure of the agricultural community depends on continually attracting talented students into the field. We hope this scholarship heightens awareness of opportunities for education in agriculture. The award can go to any college expenses — tuition, books or living expenses.
