Quote from Ellie Ireson, previous scholar recipient (Alumni) “Congratulations to the new recipient of 2023. I was fortunate enough to be granted this award in 2022. The opportunities the scholarship provides has helped kick start my agriculture career through networking and industry experience. I look forward to seeing Isabella make the most of it.“
