Ben Miller, of Ullin, was acknowledged as considered one of 30 members of the Class of 2022 Farm Credit Agriculture Scholars throughout a luncheon at Thelma Keller Convention Center in Effingham on Thursday, June 2.
Each scholar receives $2,000 from Farm Credit Illinois to pursue a level throughout the area of agriculture. Recipients had been chosen from 117 candidates all through central and southern Illinois by a panel of judges within the agriculture trade.
This fall Miller will attend Shawnee Community College to review welding and truck driving with hopes to return to his household cattle ranch. A graduate of Century High School, he’s the son of Brent and Holly Miller of Ullin.
“FCI is proud to invest in tomorrow’s agricultural leaders,” mentioned Rod Stoll, vp of market engagement for FCI. “These scholars will support our mission of Helping Farm Families Succeed by applying their passion for agriculture in careers that shape the future of the industry and Rural America.”
