The Mahindra Tractors "Women in Ag" Scholarships were awarded to four women.
From almost 8,000 applicants, these four women were selected to receive merit-based college scholarships from Mahindra USA for use during the 2012 school year:
• Laura Erbe from Altoona, KS, will be a freshman at Kansas State University majoring in Animal Science.
• Nicole Hood from Middletown, MD, is a freshman at Delaware Valley College majoring in Agricultural Business Management.
• Brooke Nation from Alva, OK, will be a freshman at Oklahoma State University majoring in Agricultural Education.
• Rebecca Lazenby from Midway, TX, will be a freshman at Texas A&M University - College Station majoring in Agricultural Extension.
In partnership with The National FFA Organization, the Mahindra scholarship winners were chosen based on their passion and involvement in agricultural studies as well as their academic performance and leadership.
Every year, Mahindra USA teams up with the National FFA Organization to sponsor select young women involved in agriculture and their pursuit of furthering their education with a college degree.
