Wisconsin Custom Operators Honors Scholarship Winners
Wisconsin Ag Connection - 03/24/2020

Two students have been awarded college scholarship money by the Wisconsin Custom Operators, Inc. for their leadership, civic engagement, academics and volunteer activities related to agriculture.

Earning $1,000 this year were Tyler Cross, Poynette, a first-year student in the Farm and Industry Short Course program at UW-Madison; and Racheal Osterhaus, Chadwick, Ill., a junior at UW-Platteville, majoring in animal science with a minor in biology.

"WCO understands that the foundation for the continued success of Wisconsin's agricultural economy depends on a well-educated workforce," says Dr. Kevin Shinners, chairman of the WCO Scholarship Committee and professor of biological systems engineering at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. "We also recognize that the high-cost of additional education can impact this need."

The funds were awarded by the Wisconsin Custom Operators, Inc. at its recent annual meeting.
