Roberts to receive latest OFF Scholarship
Rebecca Roberts of Centerburg has been chosen to receive the Centerbury Oldtime Farming Festival Scholarship Award for the 2017-2018 school year. She is a graduate of Centerburg High School and Wilmington College and has recently completed her second year of schooling in the College of Veterinary Medicine at The Ohio State University. She is looking forward to starting her third year where she will be learning clinical skills and begin participating in live surgeries. Some of her favorite classes have been neurology, cardiology and anatomy. While taking these challenging classes she maintains a high grade-point average along with working part-time to help pay for her education. Some extracurricular activities have been the following: Green Key Honor Society at Wilmington College, Human Animal Bond Club, Delta Tau Alpha Agriculture Honor Society and National Wild Turkey Federation. After receiving a degree in Veterinary Medicine, Rebecca says she would like to eventually establish her own private animal clinic in a small town or city where she can personally get to know her clients and patients.
In order to be considered for receiving a scholarship from The Oldtime Farming Festival it is required the student be enrolled as a full time student with at least 12 credit hours and planning to pursue a degree at any two or four-year accredited institution majoring in an agriculture related course of study. He or she must be a senior or graduate of Centerburg High School living in the Centerburg School District.
The fine support of The Oldtime Farming Festival by the Centerburg community makes it possible to award scholarships to these fine young individuals.
