Bradford “Brad” Feather of Bowling Green, has been awarded the Elyzabeth H. Schell Scholarship from the University of Missouri College of Agriculture, Food and Natural Resources for the 2017-2018 academic year.
“Scholarships enable us to recruit and retain academically talented students to our college,” said Bryan Garton, associate dean of academic programs.
Feather, a junior majoring in agricultural education, is the son of Cindy Standley and William Feather. Brad Feather is a 2014 graduate of Bowling Green High School.
The Elyzabeth H. Schell Scholarship was established in 1981 by the estate of Elyzabeth Schell. The Schells were in the dairy business in the Kansas City area and had a strong interest in agriculture.
Scholarships are awarded to students whose parents are Missouri landowning farmers or ranchers.
“As the cost of earning a college degree continues to increase, more students are in need of financial assistance,” Garton said. “The goal of our college over the next five years is to increase our total annual scholarships awarded from approximately $1.3 to $1.5 million.”
