Four Students Earn Pork Industry, CME Scholarships

Two Iowa State University students and two Purdue University Students each take home $2,500 scholarships

NPPC last week at the annual business meeting of the National Pork Producers Council – the National Pork Industry Forum – awarded scholarships, sponsored by CME Group, to four college students who intend to pursue careers in the pork industry. NPPC administers the scholarship selection process.

The winners of the $2,500 Lois Britt Memorial Pork Industry Scholarships – named after the late NPPC vice president from Mt. Olive, N.C. – are:

ADVANCING EDUCATION: Two Iowa State University students and two Purdue University Students each take home $2,500 scholarships

• Danika Miller, Terre Haute, Ind., sophomore at Purdue University
• Drew Mogler, Alvord, Iowa, sophomore at Iowa State University

This is the 24th year of the scholarship program, which recognizes outstanding youth in the pork community. To be eligible, students must be undergraduates in a two-year swine program or a four-year college of agriculture, provide a brief letter describing their expected role in the pork industry, write an essay on an issue affecting the pork industry and submit two letters of reference from professors or industry professionals.

"With forward-thinking minds, these exceptional college students embody the future of the U.S. pork industry," said outgoing NPPC President Randy Spronk. "They are the next generation of leaders, and NPPC and the CME Group are thrilled to recognize their allegiance to the pork industry with these scholarships."
