This year’s barbecue was a great success and has allowed us to award a total of $22,500 in Imperial County Farm Bureau Scholarships to twenty-five local students. We also awarded an additional $33,000 from the six memorial scholarship funds we manage, for a total of $55,500! Our ICFB scholarship program has been extremely successful over the past several years. This has been possible because of our generous donors and sponsors.
Being able to assist students with furthering their education is a huge investment to the future of our community. We are optimistic that many of these students will return to the Imperial Valley after they complete college and become assets to our local agriculture industry. One of the best ways we can maintain the strength of Imperial Valley agriculture is to invest in our future farmers, ranchers, veterinarians, ag educators and more.
