PRINCETON – Aubrey Molln of LaMoille is a recipient of the 2012 Agricultural Scholarship from 1st Farm Credit Services.

Molln, a senior at LaMoille Community High School, is the daughter of Richard and Theresa Molln. She has been active in FFA, 4-H and her church.

This year, 1st Farm Credit Services recently announced the 24 recipients of the $1,000 scholarships, which are awarded to students who live in the association’s territory. The scholarships support students who will attend a university, college or community college to pursue an agriculture degree or a degree that will contribute to the quality of rural life.

“These students are a prime example of how great Illinois agriculture is and what the future holds,” said 1st Farm Credit Services President/CEO Gary J. Ash. “Young adults who believe in promoting, cultivating and growing agriculture are essential to our communities and business. The future is bright and hopeful in the hands of these scholars.”

Recipients were selected from a pool of 140 applicants based on their future commitment to rural America, academic achievement, community activities and agriculture involvement. An independent panel of leaders in farming, agribusiness, youth and education judged the applications.

A banquet and formal presentation of the scholarships will be hosted by 1st Farm Credit Services for the students and their parents in June.

In the fall, Molln plans to attend Bradley University to pursue a degree in engineering and environmental science. She hopes to have a career that influences agriculture or become an agriculture teacher.
