WHEATLAND SENIOR MEGHAN HERMISTON AWARDED SCHOLARSHIP

WHEATLAND (IOWA) Meghan Hermiston, a senior at Calamus-Wheatland High School, has been named this year’s local F&B Communications $500 Scholarship winner.

Hermiston plans to attend Iowa State University, Ames, in the fall to pursue a degree in agricultural business.

Hermiston is an outstanding student and exemplifies the characteristics of the F&B Communications scholarship with her school and community involvement and academic achievements, said Ken Laursen, general manager.

High school seniors who live in households in the F&B local telephone service area were eligible for the $500 award.

“Meghan truly represents the best and brightest of tomorrow’s leaders,” said Laursen.

“We’re proud to present her with this scholarship to help her continue her education.”

A primary goal of the scholarship is to ensure that our community’s children have the privilege of attending college and encourage young people to return to rural areas after graduation, said Aaron Horman, marketing manager.

The local F&B scholarship was started in 2003 because the Board of Directors and employees of F&B are committed to the education of local youth and believe learning is a lifelong process.

Hermiston’s parents Ron and Jill subscribe to F&B telephone service in the Wheatland exchange.

F&B Communications is the local telecommunications provider offering telephone, cable television, digital broadcast satellite, dial-up Internet, high-speed DSL Internet and wireless PCS services to customers in the Bennett, Calamus, Delmar, Lowden and Wheatland exchanges and surrounding areas.
