Local students receive scholarships

The Minnesota Future Farmers of America Foundation announced the 18 Minnesota high school seniors who will receive the James W. Tracy scholarship. Alden-Conger High School student Ryan Hansen and United South Central High School student Sean Doyle were among those who received the scholarship.

The scholarship is available to Minnesota high school seniors enrolled or planning to enroll in an accredited post-secondary school and pursuing a degree in agriculture. The scholarship is scored on leadership, involvement, agriculture interest and financial need.

The scholarship is possible due to the generosity of James W. Tracy, a farmer from Dennison, who died in 2014. Tracy had a deep love for the land, farming and the desire to support youth, which led him to donate his farm to the Minnesota FFA Foundation. Generations of high school seniors interested in studying agriculture will benefit from this donation through the James W. Tracy Scholarship.
