2018 Recipient:

Sierra Williamson

I am honored to receive the Craig Sallstrom Memorial Scholarship to assist me in attaining my bachelor's degree in Agricultural and Food Business Management. Agriculture has a global importance as populations continue to rise. The growth in population will challenge the agricultural industry requiring expansion in agricultural science, technology, and agribusiness careers. This challenge excites and motivates me to be part of the solution involved in solving food security issues associated with an expanding population. I will do whatever it takes to be a successful student and an asset to the future of agriculture. Thank you for your support of my goals and aspirations in agriculture.
