RUSHVILLE — The National FFA Organization awarded a $1,000 AGCO Dealer scholarship to Michaela Orme of the Rusvhille Consolidated High School FFA. The scholarship is sponsored by Fraley Truck & Implement, Rushville, as a special project of the National FFA Foundation. Orme plans to use the funds to pursue a degree at Purdue University - West Lafayette.

This scholarship is one of 1,645 awarded through the National FFA Organization’s scholarship program this year. Currently, 127 sponsors contribute more than $2.1 million to support scholarships for students.

For 29 years, scholarships have been made available through funding secured by the National FFA Foundation. This funding comes from individuals, businesses and corporate sponsors to encourage excellence and enable students to pursue their educational goals.

The 2013 scholarship recipients were selected from 6,116 applicants from across the country. Selections were based on the applicant’s leadership, academic record, FFA and other school and community activities, supervised agricultural or work experience in agricultural education and future goals.

The National FFA Organization provides leadership, personal growth and career success training through agricultural education to 557,318 student members in grades seven through 12 who belong to one of 7,498 local FFA chapters throughout the U.S., Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands.
