The Henry County SWCD recently awarded three $500 scholarships to local Henry County Students who plan to major in and pursue a career in Agriculture or Natural Resources.
Henry County SWCD Scholarships were awarded to HCHS seniors Josey Pettit and Addison Delaney. Josey, daughter of Tommy & Amy Pettit, plans to attend Mississippi State University this Fall and major in Ag Business or Environmental Economics. Addison, daughter of Scott & Heather Delaney, plans to attend Murray State University this Fall and major in Animal Science.
The Charles "Dickie" Brewer Memorial Scholarship was awarded to Blake Kennedy, son of Chad & Stephanie Kennedy. Blake is currently enrolled in Murray State University's Hutson School of Agriculture Accelerate Program. This new program allows students to work toward both an undergraduate degree and a graduate degree at the same time. Blake will graduate from MSU this Spring with a degree in Agricultural Systems Technology. He will continue his Graduate studies at Murray State University this Fall.
The Henry County SCWD is very proud of what these students have accomplished and wishes them the very best in their future endeavors!
Congratulations to the Class of 2022!
