BRYAN – To further strengthen its commitment to youth in agriculture, Capital Farm Credit is continuing its tradition of awarding 100 scholarships to Texas students.
Calallen High School Senior Dakota Roe was awarded a $1,000 scholarship from Capital Farm Credit's Robstown branch office and Banquete High School Senior Casey Sullivan was awarded a $500 scholarship.
In addition to various scholarships given through colleges and universities, as well as other methods, each of Capital Farm Credit's branch offices across the state is awarding at least one scholarship.
"A big part of our mission is to help rural areas grow and thrive by providing farmers and ranchers with the capital they need to make their businesses successful," said Ben Novosad, chief executive officer. "We're also proud to help build the next generation of agricultural producers through our scholarship program. By supporting Texas' youth, we're helping invest in the vibrancy of rural communities throughout Texas."
