Schwab receives scholarship

Jacob Schwab, Batesville, recently received a $1,000 United Producers Inc. Scholarship.

The 2014 Batesville High School graduate is the son of Tim and Karen Schwab. He plans to attend Lincoln Land Community College to study beef production.

“The future of agriculture depends on those who are currently considering and pursuing a career in this critical industry,” said Dennis Bolling, UPI president and chief executive officer. “We want to do all we can to encourage students who have an interest in agribusiness, farming, veterinary medicine or other agriculture-based industries to pursue their careers, and this is our way of helping them do so.”

Two $1,000 scholarships from each of UPI’s 16 districts were available to eligible students.

Those selected were required to be a preferred member of UPI or a child or grandchild of a preferred member. One scholarship was awarded to a 2014 graduating high school senior enrolled in a college or technical school who will be studying in an agriculture-related field, and one scholarship was awarded to a student currently attending a college or technical school who is studying in this field.
