South Poll Grass Cattle Association to Offer New Scholarship

To help some worthy student achieve his/her academic and career goals, the Board of Directors of the South Poll Grass Cattle Association is proud to announce a new education scholarship.  The SPGCA Scholarship is designed to incentivize Junior Members of the SPGCA interest and education in agriculture.

Teddy Gentry, founder and president of South Poll cattle and the SPGCA has ecstatically proclaimed numerous times that youth are the most important product of family farms and the future of the industry and our organization.    

The scholarship is valued at $500 and will be awarded to the winning student based on their application, essay submission, and recommendation from their principal or counselor.  The essay asks applicants to outline their intended major, career goals, and future involvement with South Poll cattle.

Students that are Junior members of SPGCA in good standing, have completed their senior year of high school (by the time the field day is held in June), and are committed to the pursuit of an agricultural or agriculture-related major at any college or university (including community college for first two years) in the United States are eligible for the scholarship.

The online application and additional information can be found at  https://www.southpoll.com

The deadline for applications is April 1, 2018 with the award to be announced and presented at the SPGCA Annual Field Day held in June.  For further questions please contact southpollgrasscattle@yahoo.com or call (256) 996-3142.

Donations are currently being accepted to help fund future scholarships and/or activities of the SPGCA Junior membership.
