Local students earn NILE scholarships

“Through the efforts of the NILE Foundation the total scholarship amount was increased from $25,000 to $30,000 to help support this year’s scholarship winners, interns, and rolling scholarship winners from previous years,” says Al McCormick, NILE Scholarship Committee Chairman.
Since 1990, the NILE and NILE Foundation awarded over $575,000 in scholarships to deserving youth active in 4-H, FFA, and their communities. They excelled in the classroom while participating in NILE events.
Five one-time scholarships have been awarded to the following seniors in high school in the amount of $1,000:
