MISSISSIPPI STATE, MS — Hannah Childress, of Thorsby, AL, is among seven Mississippi State students receiving a prestigious Alabama Feed and Grain Association Scholarship.

Childress, a senior agriculture education, leadership and communications student, is receiving $3,500 through the AFGA award given to students majoring in agricultural-related fields who have high grades, are involved in the community and show an interest in agricultural science.

The AFGA works closely with institutions of higher learning to provide numerous scholarship opportunities for outstanding students. The non-profit trade association represents every segment of the feed and grain industries in Alabama.

Scott Willard, MSU College of Agriculture and Life Sciences dean, said partnerships like the one with the AFGA are essential to supporting student success.

“The Alabama Feed and Grain Association has been a long-time supporter of Mississippi State through scholarships and generous giving,” he said. “This support helps train the next generation of agricultural leaders in the Midsouth and beyond.”
