MEGAN SLATTERY NAMED F&B SCHOLAR
WHEATLAND (IOWA) Megan Slattery, a senior at Calamus-Wheatland High School from Calamus, has been named this year’s local F&B $500 scholarship winner.
Slattery plans to attend Iowa State University and enroll in the College of Human Sciences. In her application essay, Slattery wrote how her receipt of the Herbert Hoover Uncommon Student Award impacted her life and about the community reaction she received. The award included a conservation project to restore the Mockridge Wildlife Preserve north of Calamus.
High school seniors who live in households in the F&B local telephone service area were eligible for the award. Students submitted an application form and three finalists were selected for in-person interviews.
A primary goal of the scholarship is to ensure that children have the privilege of attending college and encourage young people to return to rural areas after graduation.
The local F&B scholarship program 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.
Megan’s parents are James Slattery and Peggy Slattery.
