LINCOLN, NEB.– The Nebraska Farm Bureau Foundation awarded the Nebraska Rural Radio Foundation Scholarship in Honor of Max & Eric Brown to Sasha Taylor of Ainsworth.
The $2,000 scholarship awards non-traditional students, age 25 or older, living in Nebraska’s rural communities. Taylor is pursuing a nursing degree through Mid-Plains Community College at the Valentine Extended Campus.
Taylor’s long term goal is to remain on the family farm with her husband and children and continue to raise them in the rural lifestyle. After her youngest child starts kindergarten, she wants to make a positive commitment to the quality of life in rural Nebraska by providing access to healthcare close to home.
“There is a need for nurses in my community, and I have a passion for helping people,” Taylor said. “This scholarship will help me pursue training to be a nurse in my home community, and I am grateful for the support of my education and my community’s continued success.” she continued.
“Sasha has shown a commitment to rural Nebraska and agriculture,” said Megahn Schafer, executive director of the Nebraska Farm Bureau Foundation. “It is because of outstanding individuals like Sasha that the future of Nebraska is in good hands.”
The Nebraska Farm Bureau Foundation took over the Nebraska Rural Radio Foundation Scholarship in Honor of Max & Eric Brown when the Nebraska Rural Radio Foundation dissolved in April of this year.
The mission of the Nebraska Farm Bureau Foundation is to engage youth, educators, and the general public to promote an understanding of the vital importance of agriculture in the lives of all Nebraskans. The Nebraska Farm Bureau Foundation is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit. For more information about the Nebraska Farm Bureau Foundation, visit www.nefbfoundation.org.
