CRI Awards Scholarships to Agriculture Students

SHAWANO, Wisconsin – Cooperative Resources International (CRI) has awarded $750 scholarships to six students who are studying toward a career in an agriculture field.

“CRI is proud to support youth and help ensure a strong future for agriculture,” states Terri Dallas, Vice President of Information and Public Relations. “As evidenced through this year’s applications, today’s youth – especially the scholarship recipients – understand the importance of agriculture. Their dedication to ag is humbling.”

Dallas went on to note that the applicants, representing both dairy and beef operations, hailed from 17 states. Demonstrating their involvement, nearly every applicant participated in an agricultural youth program such as 4-H or FFA.

“Even more impressive,” states Dallas, “is how the applicants proved to be tomorrow’s leaders. Nearly every one has served as the president or captain of a club or organization.”

The recipients of this year’s CRI collegiate scholarship include: Brooke Engstrom of Renville, Minnesota; Emma Gwidt of Pulaski, Wisconsin; Shelby Schiefelbein of Kimball, Minnesota; Ellen Schilderink of Hart, Texas; Genevieve VanWye of Lancaster, Missouri; and Collin Weltzien of Arcadia, Wisconsin.




Students were eligible to apply if pursuing a degree in an agricultural field and if actively involved on the dairy or ranch of a GENEX or AgSource member.
