WORTHINGTON, Ohio – The Ohio Soybean Council Foundation (OSCF) is pleased to announce that Kelly Fager of Wauseon has been awarded a $3,000 undergraduate OSCF scholarship for the 2014-15 academic year.
This is the seventh year for the OSCF Scholarship Program, which was created to encourage undergraduate students to pursue careers in agriculture, as well as to support ongoing graduate-level research. All OSCF scholarships are awarded on a competitive basis to full-time students at an Ohio college or university.
“Congratulations to all of the 2014-15 OSCF scholarship winners,” said Amy Sigg Davis, Ohio Soybean Council board member and soybean farmer from Warren County, who also serves on the scholarship selection committee. “Every year we look forward to seeing what the students will accomplish as they pursue careers in the field of agriculture and continue to make advancements in the soybean industry.”
Fager is majoring in agricultural communication at The Ohio State University and will be a senior in the fall of 2014. She is currently involved with the OBIC Bioproducts Innovation Center as a student assistant and student supervisor, president of OSU Collegiate Young Farmers and has represented the OSU Agricultural Technical Institute as a campus tour guide. She previously completed two internships with the Ohio Farm Bureau Federation and the Lucas, Ottawa, Sandusky and Wood County Farm bureaus. Kelly would like to pursue a career as an agricultural communicator.
