This scholarship was established in 2015 by the Green Family, partners in Heritage Family Farms. We are a fifth generation corn and soybean farm located in Douglas County, Illinois. Our passion for agriculture is generations deep and we desire to share this passion with the next generation. The purpose of the scholarship is to aid a worthy individual in furthering his/her education in an agricultural field.
Any high school senior attending Arcola, Arthur-Lovington/Atwood-Hammond, Tuscola or Villa Grove High Schools, that is pursuing an agricultural field of study at a community college or university is encouraged to apply!
