James H. Johnson Scholarship Winner

Marion County Farm Bureau is pleased to announce Emma Heimlich as the recipient of the 2017 James H. Johnson scholarship.

Heimlich, a graduating senior at River Valley High School, is the daughter of Nicholas and Carrie Heimlich. After graduation she plans to attend the University of Kentucky and study animal science. We wish her good luck in her future in agriculture!

The James H. Johnson Scholarship Fund was established in 1998 by the Marion County Farm Bureau board of trustees in honor of James H. Johnson, a Marion county farmer and fire fighter. Johnson worked hard for years to further Farm Bureau.  He gave unselfishly of himself to his family, neighbors and friends. He was taken from the community prematurely in a rescue operation. The objective of this scholarship fund is to support and further the education of Marion County High School graduates entering college.
