Monroe County Farm Bureau announces 2021 scholarship recipients

Three students from Monroe County will each receive a $500 scholarship to help with expenses for their upcoming college year through Ohio Farm Bureau Foundation.  Alayna Christy, Madison Huck and Allee Zwick were selected as the 2021 scholarship recipients. 

Alayna Christy of Woodsfield is the daughter of Vaughn and Pam Christy.  Alayna is currently attending the University of Findlay majoring in animal science/pre-vet. At the University of Findlay, Alayna is a member of the beef cattle show team, Pre-Vet club, Habitat for Humanity, and a chairman in Collegiate FFA.  Currently, Alayna is interning at Mountain Valley Veterinary Clinic in New Martinsville, WV.

“After I graduate, I plan on continuing my education to earn my doctorate in veterinary medicine with main focus in mixed animal medicine, with a specialty in theriogenology,” she said. 

Madison Huck of Lewisville is the daughter of Chris and Christina Huck.  Madison will be a junior this fall at the University of Findlay.  She is an animal science industry major with a minor in marketing.  Some of her hobbies include showing cattle and being outdoors. 

“With a degree in animal science and a minor in marketing, I am hopeful to have a career with farm marketing and potentially nutrition and pharmaceuticals sales,” she said.

Allee Zwick of Lower Salem is the daughter of Steve and Gail Zwick.  Allee is currently attending Washington State Community College studying in the medical field. 

“I currently have my LPN (Licensed Practical Nurse) degree, and working towards a RN (Registered Nurse) degree,” she said.  Some of her hobbies include truck and tractor pulls, square dancing, listening to music and hanging with her friends. Allie also volunteered at the Tri-county Food Pantry in Lower Salem. 

“Grawl (my grandmother) and I have been volunteering there since I was around 7 or 8 years old.  The community is very nice and they have a good setup; they could always use new helpers,” she said.

Monroe County Farm Bureau congratulates these fine students on their accomplishments and wishes all the best to them and our area graduates in their future endeavors.
