His interests in horticulture have guided him to pursue a degree in environmental science. He will be attending Delta State University in the fall. His love for agriculture and learning are evident through his selection of part time jobs, and choices of extracurricular activities. We are so proud to award this young man with a scholarship to help him further his goals through higher education.
