WILMINGTON — Clinton County Farm Bureau is proud to announce the 2018 Jamie Florea Memorial Scholarship recipient is Brady Bergefurd.
The son of Brad and Marcia Bergefurd of Wilmington is a 2018 graduate of Wilmington High School. Brady plans to study Agribusiness and Applied Economics at The Ohio State University.
Brady has been actively involved in the Wilmington FFA Chapter where he participated in chapter meetings, career development events, and participated in State and National FFA Conventions. He was a leader on the Livestock Judging team as well as the Soil Judging team.
Brady excels in his academics — he is a member of the National Honor Society and of Phi Delta Sigma and was honored as one of the top students of Wilmington High School.
He was also a student-athlete — a wrestler for all four years, team captain and he recently qualified for districts. He also played third base and pitcher on the JV baseball team.
Brady’s work isn’t finished at school; he also works on his family’s fruit and vegetable farm. When you can’t find Brady planting, cultivating, harvesting or marketing his family’s fruit and vegetables, you might find him operating an excavator for Hibbs Excavating.
Brady has been an active exhibitor in 4-H for 12 years where he showed poultry and swine.
All of these activities and accomplishments have taught Brady valuable lessons, helped him to become a better leader and have shown him the amounts of dedication one must have to succeed. Congratulations Brady! We are proud to support your educational endeavors. We wish you the best in the future.
Clinton County Farm Bureau is a proud supporter of youth in agriculture. We are thrilled to see young adults becoming an advocate in agriculture, staying connected on current farm issues with our elected officials and making a positive impact on lives of others and practices in the farming industry to provide for a more diverse and global community.
