LAMAR - The Clinton County Conservation District announces Courtney Meyer is the recipient of this year's Rich Ramm Memorial Scholarship.
She will receive a $500 scholarship to continue her studies in the field of agriculture.
Meyer, a daughter of Kent and Coreena Meyer of 447 W. Winter Road, Loganton, just completed her sophomore year at Penn State University majoring in Agribusiness Management. She continues to work on the family dairy farm and is involved in 4-H as a volunteer leader and a member of the Penn State Dairy Science Club.
The committee who reviewed the applications said it was a very difficult decision again this year because of the quality of the applications. The members encourage all students eligible to continue to apply in the future.
The scholarship is open to a graduating senior or present full-time college student from any Clinton County high school or the Jersey Shore Area School District. The student must be entered in or have been accepted into an accredited program in the field of agriculture. Primary consideration is given to those students who have continued to successfully challenge themselves throughout their academic years as indicated by course choice, grades, leadership and work experience. Activities, awards and recognitions are also considered. Financial information may be requested in order to make final award determination.
This scholarship fund was established in memory of a local farmer Rich Ramm, who died in 1992. Rich was an agronomy graduate and a strong supporter of conservation. His friends have donated money for this perpetual scholarship fund, administered through the Clinton County Conservation District.
