Aidan Koeller, son of Kris Koeller and Deanna Koeller, received a $1,000 Pike-Scott Farm Bureau scholarship. Aidan is a graduate of Western High School in Barry. He plans to attend Iowa State University majoring in Agriculture Business.

Drew Welbourne, Pittsfield High School graduate, has been awarded the Rod Webel Scholarship. She is the daughter of Andy and Lisa Welbourne. Drew plans to major in Agriculture Business at Murray State University in Kentucky.

Blake Roderick, Executive director of the Pike-Scott Farm Bureau says the $1,000 scholarship was established by family and friends recognizing Rod Webel who was a valued leader of the Farm Bureau and Pike County’s agricultural community.
