We Salute Our 2016 Scholarship Recipients!

A group of exemplary leaders who will positively influence the future of agriculture.

Lone Star Ag Credit recently awarded scholarships to six college-bound students in its 48-county territory. The recipients of this year's $2,500 scholarships all were involved in FFA and 4-H, served their communities in many ways and have a deep appreciation of agriculture. Scholarship entrants had to complete a one-page essay on the topic, "How has agriculture impacted your past and how will it affect your future?"

"We enjoy shining a spotlight on a few of the many excellent students in Texas," said Lone Star Chief Executive Officer Troy Bussmeir. "It is inspiring to see their service to communities and respect for agriculture. Lone Star extends them our warmest congratulations."

The students will all head off to college this fall:
