2015 $1000 Scholarship Award
Rachael applied in again 2015 and we were proud to award her our scholarship for the second year.
Our members have donated money over the years for Western Colorado high school seniors to further ag studies at a college of their choice. In 2014 WCHS gave $1000 to CSU Financial Aid for Rachael Latta, a Cedaredge resident and major in Horticulture with a concentration in Food Crop Production. In 2015 this is what Rachael said, "As of last semester, I have a GPA of 3.965. So far this semester I have A's in all of my classes, so I'm working hard to keep it that way!"
"My favorite classes are usually my plant or Horticulture classes, and this semester I'm really enjoying my Entomology and Weed Management courses. The more I learn about agriculture and plant systems, the more convinced I am that I'm studying the right subject and at the right school!"
