Oregon Cattlemen's Association announces scholarship recipients

 

SALEM, Ore. -- Oregon Cattlemen's Association officials are excited to announce the 2014 scholarship recipients from the Oregon Cattlemen's Stewardship Fund.

Andrew Miles, Patrick Linnell, John O'Leary, Garrett Robinson and Devin Robinson have each received scholarships to help fray the cost of higher education.

"With a record number of highly-qualified applicants, the scholarship award decision was particularly difficult this year,” said the Oregon Cattlemen’s Stewardship Fund Scholarship (OCSF) Committee Chair Norbert Hartmann. OCA officials appreciate the time and effort in submitting the applications and encourage all applicants to reapply next spring if they are still attending school.
