Soybean association awards scholarship

The Becker-Mahnomen Soybean & Corn Growers have presented a $500 scholarship to Wesley Jaster of Lake Park.

There are five high schools within the growers’ counties and the group felt Wesley’s essay on the “Challenges of Farming in the Future” explained this issue thoroughly. Wesley is pursuing a degree at Ridgewater College, Hutchinson, for a future as a Class 111 non-destructive tester.

This degree enables Wesley, through new technology, to test for quality and rigidity in large structures and equipment such as large agriculture equipment and boilers used in businesses like Crystal Sugar.
