WPS Foundation Announces Agribusiness/Forestry Scholarship Recipients
Wisconsin Ag Connection - 06/16/2008

Ten high school students from northeastern and central Wisconsin were recognized as recipients of a $700 Agribusiness/Forestry Scholarship offered by Wisconsin Public Service Foundation, Inc. The recipients are graduating seniors who plan to continue their education at an accredited college or university in select two- or four-year agribusiness or forestry programs.

"The goal of this scholarship program is to help young people in our service territory develop skills and leadership abilities and gain the technical knowledge they'll need for farm, forestry or agribusiness employment," says Mike Kawleski, manager of the Public Service Agriculture Department. "This is especially important since population studies warn of projected shortfalls in human resources needed for Wisconsin's largest industry--agriculture."

A committee of professional agricultural leaders chose recipients on a competitive basis. The 2008 Agribusiness/Forestry Scholarship recipients, their majors and universities are Cariss Lavash, Brillion High School - Agribusiness/Dairy Science, UW-Madison; Ben Kinnard, Southern Door High School - Agribusiness, UW-River Falls; Brandon Kruswick, Southern Door High School - Agricultural & Life Sciences, UW-Madison; David Altenhofen, Marathon Senior High School - Agricultural Engineering, UW-River Falls; Justin Englebert, Southern Door High School, Veterinary Science, UW-River Falls; Kristen Doster, Pulaski High School - Agricultural & Life Sciences, UW-Madison; Lindsay Dallmann, Brillion High School - Agribusiness, UW-Platteville; Vanna Herrmann, Valders High School - Farm & Industry Short Course, UW-Madison; Lucas Leahy, West De Pere High School - Natural Resources Conservation, UW-Stevens Point; Riley Ebert, Brillion High School - Agriculture, UW-River Falls.

Wisconsin Public Service Foundation is a private, charitable foundation, incorporated in 1964, that supports charities and organizations in need of financial assistance.
