STEPHENSON COUNTY (WREX) -
The Chairperson of the Stephenson County 4-H and Extension Foundation, Bonnie Campbell, recently announced the winners of the R.C. Miller Scholarship for the 2015-16 year. The recipients were selected by a committee of judges from the Foundation's Board of Directors.
The R.C. Miller Scholarship was established and funded by the late R.C. Miller. Miller was a local leader in agri-business, and started the scholarship program to encourage and support people from Stephenson County pursuing degrees in agriculture, with an emphasis in conservation.
This year's winners are Landon Baumgartner, of Dakota, and Nicholas Baker, of Davis. Each will receive $1,000 to use toward educational expenses.
Baumgartner is studying Environmental Management and Sustainability at the George Williams College of Aurora University. Barker is studying Resource Management-Law Enforcement at the University of Wisconsin at Stevens Point.
