Special to the News
In December, The Coosa County Cattlemen’s Association presented checks to Janet Lovelady, Coosa County 4-H Foundation Regional Extension agent, and Andria Hanson of Coosa County DHR in support of the kids of Coosa County.
This is the second annual contribution made to these two organizations, and the Cattlemen’s Association is proud to be able to help offer this support again this year.
Additionally, the association will be presenting a $1,000 scholarship to a high school senior or college student at its annual April steak dinner and membership meeting.
To qualify for the scholarship, the student’s parent or grandparent must be a member of the Coosa County Cattlemen’s Association in good standing for at least one year. The student also must maintain a “B” or better average during the past school year, must be of sound moral reputation and must be pursuing ag-related studies.
To apply, students submit a typed essay of up to 500 words in length describing issues confronting the beef industry and offering their solution, and entries must be postmarked by March 1.
Applicants can then mail their contact information and essay to John Harris; 8973 U.S. Hwy. 231; Rockford, AL 35136.
