Once again, it was another great group of applicants, said Missouri Corn Scholarship Chair Matt Lambert of Laclede. It always amazes me the work ethic and career goals these young students set for themselves. Theyre putting themselves in a great position to accomplish those goals, and Missouri Corn is proud to support their efforts and better the future of Missouri agriculture.
In addition to Lambert, the committee is comprised of Missouri Corn board members Dylan Rosier of Mound City, Brent Hoerr of Palmyra, Brian Lehman of Versailles, and Clint Stephens of Advance. This is the twenty-fifth year Missouri Corn Scholarships have been awarded to students studying agriculture. Applications for the 2022 Missouri Corn Scholarship Program will be available online on or before Dec. 15, 2021.
