With graduation comes a new journey, but it can be costly. That's why Jim Wells County Farm Bureau awarded four $1,500 scholarships to local youth.

"We offer these scholarships to help our local youth," JWC Fame Bureau President Lindsey Koenig said. "Trade school, college and university educations can be expensive. Scholarships are our way to provide assistance. It's also our way to invest in the future of Texas."

Gabriella Canales and Christian Rangel of Alice, Robert Moncada of San Diego and Rebecca Brady of Orange Grove received scholarships through the JWC Farm Bureau's scholarship program.

"These young men and women were selected based on their academic, scholastic and agricultural involvement," Koenig said. "We are proud of their commitment to their education and to agriculture."

"We are confident these students will continue to excel in their future endeavors," Koenig said.
