Ohio Agriculture Council awards scholarships to two incoming Wooster Buckeyes


Submitted by Kris Boone,

Each year, the Ohio Agricultural Council offers up to three (3) $1,500 scholarships annually to Ohio high school seniors who plan to pursue a degree in agriculture. Of the three high school seniors selected, two are bound for Ohio State ATI!

Joseph Bruns is a recent graduate of Anna High School and will be an incoming freshman at The Ohio State University ATI where he plans to major in animal science and agribusiness and economics. The son of Ron & Margie Bruns, Joseph grew up on their family farm and developed a love for raising swine and beef cattle. During high school he worked for a local butcher shop which ignited a passion for the meat processing industry. His plan after college is to work in the animal and meat processing industry and eventually own his own abattoir or butcher shop.

Adrianna Meyer is a recent graduate of Liberty Center High School and will be attending The Ohio State University ATI to study community leadership with a specialization in extension education and agribusiness. Her passion for educating others about the agricultural industry stemmed from her extensive involvement in Ohio 4-H, including raising goats and sheep for her county fair projects. Her experiences in 4-H have led her to pursue a career in extension education upon graduation from college.
