COLUMBUS, OHIO – Lindsey Gilmore, of Cardington-Lincoln High School, was among eight graduates to receive an FFA scholarship from JD Equipment, who is proud to award FFA scholarships totaling $4,000 to graduating seniors.
“We are very proud to offer eight $500 scholarships to local students,” states JD Equipment’s CEO Jeff Mitchell. JD Equipment has contributed to this program for the last 4 years totaling over $22,000.
The selection criteria were based on FFA involvement, work experience, agricultural experience, community service, leadership skills, and academics (GPA). There is nothing more important to JD Equipment and its owners than the future of our youth and the agricultural industry. “Making sure that kids who are interested in agriculture have ample opportunities to continue their education is a responsibility we have taken upon ourselves,” says Mitchell.
