“Compeer Financial’s high school scholarship program is intended to encourage those interested in agriculture to explore what’s possible for their future,” says John Monson, chairman of the fund’s board of trustees. “Just as these scholarship recipients represent a strong future for agriculture and rural America, Compeer Financial is committed to building a strong future for our clients and our communities. The high school seniors who will be awarded this scholarship have already made an impact on their local rural communities, and will go on to do great things to impact agriculture. This is another way we are able to champion the hopes and dreams of rural America.”
