The Richland County Farm Bureau is pleased to announce the recipients for this year’s scholarships.
Reagan is the daughter of Travis and Shelley Alsept and a current student at the Ohio State University – ATI where she is double majoring in agricultural communications and community leadership. She attended Plymouth High School and grew her love for agriculture through membership in organizations such as FFA, 4-H and Junior Fair. During her college career, she has been involved in the Agricultural Communicators and Leaders of Tomorrow, Collegiate FFA, Hoof ‘n Hide, and the OSU Twirling Team.
When asked to describe how she views her place in the agricultural industry, “I want to teach and educate the next group of 4-H members or possibly travel and put agriculture communications to use and work for a livestock-related company. I still have a few years of school left and I’m going to use the many opportunities to explore my passions in agriculture. I know working in this industry is what makes me feel whole, now I just had to find my perfect fit.”
Ethan is the son of Adam and Kelly Staley and a 2022 graduate of Clear Fork High School. During high school, Ethan was involved in FFA, National Honor Society, as well as baseball, football and track. So far in his livestock career, he has been involved in the Blue Ribbon Livestock Club, where he served as president; the Ohio Best Program; the Ohio Lead Program; the American Simmental Association and the American Maine-Anjou Association.
In the fall, Ethan plans to attend Northwest College in Powell, Wyoming majoring in agricultural business. Ethan said, “I plan to work for XL Ranch while I am out west. I plan to use these experiences to lead me to a career in agriculture with the goal of owning my own farm or ranch and being a bull buyer for a genetic company.”
Congratulations Reagan and Ethan. Richland County Farm Bureau is excited to see where your adventures take you in the coming years!
