Siefkas receives local Farm Bureau scholarship

Published: Wednesday, July 2, 2014 9:56 a.m. CDT

Courtney Ann Siefkas, daughter of John and Connie Siefkas, is a recipient of one of the $250 Clarke County Farm Bureau scholarships offered this year.

John and Connie Siefkas have been Clarke County Farm Bureau members for many years, with John Siefkas serving as president, vice president and secretary throughout the years, as well as serving on committees and taking leadership in many other aspects of Farm Bureau.

This has been a good example to Courtney Siefkas who has demonstrated academic excellence, participated in extra-curricular activities and taken on leadership roles in her education experience.

She participated in volleyball, basketball, FFA, FCCLA, TAG, band, speech, and drama; held position of junior class president, class VP in ninth and 10th, and received academic gold and silver medals. She has also participated in community and church activities in VBS, JAM, and community service projects of house repairs and roofing.

All of these participations helped continue to mold her to be prepared to move on with her education. Her outlook on life has come from her hard work on the family farm, numerous babysitting jobs, and especially her large leadership role in applying for a $2,500 grant the FFA chapter received to conduct a project in the Murray school called Operation Feed the Hungry.

She plans to attend AIB College of Business, majoring in business administration and minoring in accounting.

Clarke County Farm Bureau members congratulate Courtney and wish her the best.
