McArtor receives CHS Foundation scholarship
James McArtor of Grant, who is majoring in mechanized systems management at University of Nebraska – Lincoln, was one of seven Nebraska students to receive the 2017 CHS Foundation scholarship.
The CHS Foundation, funded by charitable gifts from CHS Inc., is committed to developing the next generation of leaders in agriculture. As part of the foundation’s work centered on advancing agriculture education, it has awarded scholarships to seven Nebraska high school graduates.
The Nebraska students are among 100 students representing 23 states and Canada. Each will receive a $1,000 scholarship to cover expenses associated with their freshman year of college.
An independent, external committee selected recipients based on their career goals, essays, extracurricular involvement, transcripts and reference letters. In addition to high school scholarships, the CHS Foundation funds an additional 200 scholarships for students enrolled in an agricultural-related program at colleges across the country. These scholarships range from $1,000 to $2,000 and are directly administered by more than 30 CHS partner schools.
