Marcie Stevenson, a senior at Calamus-Wheatland High School, has
been named one of 30 national 2010 Foundation for Rural Service (FRS)
$2,500 scholarship winners.
With more than 1,300 applicants for the FRS scholarship, Stevenson
was one of only 30 students selected from across the country to
receive an award.
F&B Communications sponsored Stevenson's application, providing
$500 of the $2,500 scholarship award.
“Marcie is an exemplary individual and possesses the talents
necessary to become a successful contributor to her community,"
Ken Laursen, general manager.
Stevenson is the fourth student in eight years from the F&B
Communications service area to be awarded a FRS scholarship
"The FRS scholarship program allows telecommunications providers to show their support of the youth living in the communities they serve. It is a source of tremendous pride for us and the community of Wheatland," said
Stevenson plans to attend Iowa State University, Ames, to
pursue a degree in agricultural business.
A primary goal of the FRS 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,
High school seniors who live in households in the F&B local
telephone service area were eligible to apply.
Stevenson’s parents Mary and Terry subscribe to F&B
services in the Wheatland exchange.
