Are you a Clinton County graduating high school senior who will further their education, majoring in agriculture?
The Clinton County Foundation is accepting applications for the Tolliver Family Ag Scholarship until March 1, 2017. One recipient from the county will receive up to $1,000 to reduce their first year college tuition bill.
“This is a unique scholarship at our Foundation because the entire family has raised this money,” said Jan Blohm, director for CCF. “If you have gone to the Corn Festival you were probably drawn to the smell of apples and brown sugar cooking in the Tolliver kettles. Their entire family works at the apple butter booth. They have endowed the fund built on apple butter so that it is a legacy to the future of farming.”
“How many can say, I cook apple butter so that a deserving student has the opportunity for a college education? Their generosity is remarkable and their commitment to hard work and agriculture is mirrored in this singular scholarship.”
Students may contact their guidance office for the application or they may go to the Clinton County Foundation Facebook page to download it. All applications must be returned by March 1 to Ginger Valentine at the Peoples Bank office in Wilmington.
