Two area students were among the recipients of the scholarships.

Brady Littlefield, a senior at Sturgis High School, plans to attend Michigan State University to pursue a bachelor of science degree in animal science. Littlefields’s goal is to work for a livestock-feed or -supplement company as an animal nutritionist.
Applicants were evaluated on a wide range of qualifications and required to pursue a degree related to agriculture. Recipients received either a $2,000 or $1,000 scholarship determined by the length of their intended college program.
