The Carroll Chamber of Commerce announced three recipients of the Carroll County Agricultural Scholarship in the amount of $250 each.
Karter Kennebeck, son of Brian and Shandi Kennebeck of Glidden and a Glidden-Ralston High School senior, will be attending Des Moines Area Community College in Ankeny to study ag business. He plans to follow his passion for agriculture, which he developed from helping his grandparents farm, and fulfill his dream of running a successful farming operation of his own one day.
Adam Nees, son of Mike and Kim Nees of Carroll and a Carroll High School senior, will be attending Iowa State University to study ag business. He plans to expand his knowledge in the agriculture field, where he gained a passion working with livestock and equipment on the family farm at a young age. He plans to always have agriculture as a part of his life and will work to improve the industry.
Haley Onken, daughter of Joel and Tami Onken of Glidden and a Glidden-Ralston High School senior, will be attending Iowa State University pursing a major in animal science, pre-vet/veterinary medicine. She plans to expand her knowledge in the agricultural field and prepare to make a career in veterinary medicine.
This scholarship is dually awarded by the Carroll Chamber of Commerce and the Carroll County Cattleman’s Association. It is made possible through donations from Carroll area businesses, Carroll County Cattlemen, and proceeds from a special 1987 livestock auction.
