2023 Roy and Linda Funk Scholarship Recipient
I am writing to express my sincere gratitude to you for making the Roy and Linda Funk scholarship possible. I was thrilled to learn of my selection for this honor, and I am deeply appreciative of your support. I am going to be a freshman in college as an Agriculture Regulations Major, and I hope to become an agricultural lawyer. The financial assistance you provided will be of great help to me in paying my educational expenses, and it will allow me to concentrate more of my time studying as I am playing softball at the University as well. Thank you again for your generosity and support. I promise you I will work very hard and eventually give back to others, both in the Ag industry and beyond.
