2019 FAED Scholarship Winners
This year the Foundation for Agricultural Education and Development (FAED) awarded three, one-year scholarships to three women who will begin their first or second year of college, technical or specialized study in a field related to agriculture. Below is information on our three winners.
Emma Goosic is from Franklin, NE. Emma's personal goals are in part to pursue a degree in both agriculture education and agribusiness at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. Once she receives a job as an agriculture educator, she wants to develop a balanced agriculture program between teaching and FFA. Emma is the daughter of Andy and Jessica Goosic. She believes that American agriculture will need to produce more food than ever before to meet the needs of an increased population. Emma is a Junior member of Women Involved in Farm Economics.
Haleigh Prosser is from Wiley, CO. She plans to continue with her second year at West Texas A&M University in Canyon, TX. Her parents are Andy and Robin Prosser. She has spent her time out of school working along side of her parents in the lot. Almost every Sunday from the time she could walk she has sorted cattle to prepare loads to send to the feedlot. After graduation she hopes to serve and consult feedlots and ranchers alike as a practicing food animal veterinarian and follow in her father's footsteps to own her own cattle in a personal lot.
Anna Slivka is the daughter of Shane and Erin Slivka from Winifred, MT. She has chosen to pursue a bachelor's in Agricultural Communication at Montana State University. She feels that the classes she will take will further her knowledge in many different areas. After obtaining her degree, she hopes to work among ag broadcaster and continue to serve those around her. She feels that serving others not only benefits those being directly served, but also humbles and strengthens the one who serves.
