2021 Recipient:  Connor Ruen

"I am very honored to have received the Craig Sallstrom Memorial Scholarship. I am a Junior at South Dakota State University majoring in agronomy and minoring in horticulture, pest management and soil health. Once I finish my bachelor’s degree, I plan to get my master’s in plant science or soil health. On campus I am a member of the Farmhouse Fraternity, agronomy club, horticulture club, and I am a community advisor in Pierson Hall supervising around 50 underclassmen on my floor. I am very thankful for your support as I continue my education at South Dakota State University."
