AMANDA GORZNEY F&B SCHOLAR
WHEATLAND (IOWA) Amanda Gorzney, a senior at Calamus-Wheatland High School from Grand Mound, has been named this year’s local F&B $500 scholarship winner.
Gorzney plans to attend Iowa State University to double major in agriculture and fashion design. In her application essay, Gorzney wrote that her most significant accomplishment was to graduate high school with 40 college credits to give her a jump-start on her studies at ISU.
High school seniors who live in households in the F&B local telephone service area were eligible for the award. Students submitted an application form and essay. Three finalists were selected for in-person interviews.
A primary goal of the scholarship is to ensure that children have the privilege of attending college and encourage young people to return to rural areas after graduation.
The local F&B scholarship program was started in 2003 because the Board of Directors and employees of F&B are committed to the education of local youth and believe learning is a lifelong process.
Amanda’s parents are Aaron and Kathy Gorzney.
