2023 Recipient: Baleigh Peterson
"I am humbled and appreciative of your generosity in awarding me with the Craig Sallstrom Memorial Scholarship. I am a junior at the University of Minnesota studying Agricultural Communication and Marketing with a minor in Animal Science. Upon receiving my degree, I plan to move back to south central Minnesota and work in communications for an agricultural company. On campus, I am involved in Beta of Clovia Sorority, Block & Bridle, Gopher Dairy Club, the Agricultural Education and Communication & Marketing Club, and served as the Minnesota State FFA Sentinel in 2021-2022. Receiving this scholarship not only eases the financial burden of pursuing my education but also serves as a motivator to excel academically and contribute positively to my community. I am truly thankful for your support as I pursue my degree."
