The FFA scholarship program was created by the Wooster Cargill Cares Council, a team of employees who work to implement strategic activities within the community. For nearly 50 years, the company has supported youth leadership development through the agriculture-education program.
“Nicole is the most passionate FFA member that I have had in my teaching career and is the most deserving of this scholarship,” said Aaron Arnold, Steiner’s FFA advisor. “She will have a good time at the Washington Leadership Conference and will bring back even more enthusiasm to motivate our younger members.”
“We are proud of our company’s history of supporting FFA,” said Michele Burky, chair of the Cargill Cares Council in Wooster. “After reviewing the submitted applications, we believed that Nicole’s commitment to her FFA chapter and the opportunities available to her through the national program make her the ideal candidate to send to the Washington Leadership Conference.”
