Kalley Whitlock, a sophomore at Northeastern Oklahoma A&M college, recently earned the inaugural Collegiate Farm Bureau scholarship presented by the Oklahoma Farm Bureau Young Farmers and Ranchers committee.
The new scholarship program was designed to assist active and engaged Collegiate Farm Bureau members as they prepare for careers in agriculture.
“As collegiate members are pursuing their degrees in agriculture, we are proud to support them on their journey to becoming professionals in the industry by presenting the first Collegiate Farm Bureau member scholarship,” said Cody Goodnight, OKFB YF&R chair. “We look forward to the work these members will continue to do in YF&R, Farm Bureau and agriculture.”
Whitlock is pursuing an Associate in Science with a focus in agricultural business and animal science.
She is the president of NEO A&M Collegiate Farm Bureau and is active in other campus organizations including Aggie Society, Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society and an agricultural ambassador.
With six chapters across Oklahoma, Collegiate Farm Bureau is an on-campus club designed to introduce young agriculturalists to the Farm Bureau organization early in their careers. To learn more about Collegiate Farm Bureau, contact YF&R Coordinator Zac Swartz at (405) 523-2300.
