AMVC Management Services, a diversified swine management company, is pleased to announce that nine employees who recently graduated from high school are the recipients of a scholarship to continue their education.
AMVC partners with farm shareholders to offer scholarships to graduating student employees should they decide to attend college or enter the armed forces after graduation.
To qualify for the scholarship, students must have worked for at least six months at an AMVC managed farm and be currently employed with AMVC at the time of graduation. Students are eligible for $250 worth of scholarship funds for every full year they have worked at AMVC. This money can be used towards tuition, books, living expenses or whatever the student deems necessary to further their educational experience.
“We are proud to employ students from our local high schools near our farms, enabling them to earn a fair wage while gaining exposure to a career in agriculture and learning job skills that will help them in their future careers,” commented AMVC public relations coordinator, Alicia Humphrey.
This year, AMVC distributed sweatshirts and scholarships to nine high school students totaling $3,925.
The scholarship winners include Aaron Gust (Audubon, IA), Cassidy Willis (Greenfield, OH), Trace McCuen (Audubon, IA), Kreighton Jensen (Audubon, IA), Russell Kenney (Primghar, IA), Brook Sweeny (Mount Sterling, OH), Cori Washington (Mount Sterling, OH), Trevor Jons (Carroll, IA) and Trey Nelson (Exira, IA).
