Lindsay Shell is the 2017 recipient of the Tolliver Family Agriculture Scholarship. She is a senior at Blanchester High School and will be attending Capital University. Lindsay is the daughter of Dan and Marla Shell, Midland.
For many autumns, the extended Tolliver family has produced apple butter to raise the funds for their scholarship at the Clinton County Foundation. They take pride in their industry, but also their farming heritage. They felt it was essential that they ensure the future of agriculture by establishing a scholarship that would educate the next generation of farmers and affiliated agriculture industries.
Their scholarship is one of many managed at the Clinton County Foundation. This year’s Tolliver Family Agriculture scholarship is $1,350. For those interested in this scholarship, 2018 applications are available in October on the Foundation’s Facebook page or website, clintoncountyohiofoundation.org.
“This is a great family,” said Jan Blohm, Executive Director. “When you see that apple butter booth at the Corn Festival, think of the young people who are getting an education and be glad you bought five jars of that heavenly concoction!”
Lindsay will be a pre-law major at Capital University and is working toward a career in agriculture law.
