Two students from Monroe County will each receive a $1,000 scholarship to help with expenses for their upcoming college year, thanks to Monroe County Farm Bureau. From the applications submitted, Korah Anderson of Lewisville and William Swallow of Beallsville where selected as the 2023 scholarship recipients.

Korah Anderson


Korah is the daughter of Eric and Darcie Anderson. She is a senior at University of Findlay and currently employed as a student intern at Bliss Veterinary Services in Newcomerstown, OH.  Kora said, “There I am gaining valuable, hands-on experience that will benefit me as I pursue my career as a veterinarian.” After graduation, she hopes to attend vet school to become a large or mixed animal veterinarian, focusing on rural medicine.

William Weston Swallow




William is the son of Jan and Rosalea Swallow. William participated in several clubs along with Show Pros 4-H club. “Every year my 4-H group volunteers our time at the fairgrounds to plant trees and flowers, re-mulch the flower beds, and help clean our fairgrounds up for fair time,”  William said. “My brother, Austin, is my biggest inspiration because he has been a good role model growing up.  He has a good work ethic and a good job. Austin’s always teaching me new things around the farm and in life.”  William will be attending Belmont College.

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

Labor has always been an issue, mainly because we are a seasonal operation. So that's a challenge finding somebody who only wants to work three months out of a year, sometimes up to six months.

I appreciate the benefit of having a strong voice in my corner. The extras that are included in membership are wonderful, but I'm a member because of the positive impact to my local and state agricultural communities.

Strong communities
I see the value and need to be engaged in the community I live in, to be a part of the decision-making process and to volunteer with organizations that help make our community better.

The plan we are on is great. It’s comparable to my previous job's plan, and we are a sole proprietor.

We work terrifically with the Ashtabula County Farm Bureau, hosting at least one to two outreach town hall events every year to educate new farmers and existing farmers on traditional CAUV and woodlands.

Knowing that horticulture is under the agriculture umbrella and having Farm Bureau supporting horticulture like it does the rest of ag is very important.

If it wasn't for Farm Bureau, I personally, along with many others, would not have had the opportunity to meet with our representatives face to face in Washington.

So many of the issues that OFBF and its members are advocating for are important to all Ohioans. I look at OFBF as an agricultural watchdog advocating for farmers and rural communities across Ohio.
