NCF announces scholarship recipients

The Nebraska Cattlemen Foundation (NCF) is pleased to announce it has awarded $51,000 in scholarships to students furthering their education goals in the 2017-2018 academic year.

"The Foundation strongly believes in the importance of a sound education for tomorrow's industry leaders," says Jeff Heldt, president of the Nebraska Cattlemen Foundation. "Due to the generosity of many donors and participants in the Retail Value Steer Challenge, we are able to award theses scholarships to these outstanding students."

David Schuler of Bridgeport was the recipient of the 2017 Nebraska Cattlemen Beef State Scholarship. This $10,000 scholarship was established in 2014 to support outstanding junior, senior or graduate level Nebraska resident students enrolled in a Nebraska college or university pursuing a beef industry related degree. Schuler will be a senior this fall at the University of Nebraska pursuing an Animal Science degree, with an Engler Agribusiness Entrepreneurship minor.
