Scholarship News

The winner of the 2019-2020 Kathryn G. Hansen Scholarship is Barbara Close. Barbara is from Reynolds, Illinois and is a senior at Mercer County High School. Barbara will be attending the University of Illinois and pursuing a major in Agricultural and Consumer Economics in the College of ACES. Barbara wants her education at the University of Illinois to provide her with the knowledge to achieve her goal of managing an agricultural-related business as well as allowing her to be more involved in her families farming operation. We will invite Barbara to an Illinois Administrative luncheon this fall if COVID restrictions allow an in person event; we look forward to hearing more from her.

I want to thank the Kathryn G. Hansen Scholarship Committee for their time and commitment to this very important endeavor.
