WHEATLAND SENIOR MEGHAN HERMISTON AWARDED SCHOLARSHIP
Meghan Hermiston, a senior at Calamus-Wheatland High School, has
been named this year’s local F&B Communications $500 Scholarship
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
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,
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.
