Apr 07, 2021

April 7, 2021 (Lincoln, NE) – Frontier Cooperative Company is pleased to announce 25 area students who have been awarded Frontier Cooperative Scholarships. The scholarships are each valued at $1,000 and directed toward continuation of education beyond the high school level. Frontier’s Board of Directors reviewed applications and selected the recipients. The considerations for the awarded scholarship include minimum GPA requirements, continued education focusing in agricultural-related studies, and involvement in the local agricultural and Frontier Cooperative community.
“With the link between agriculture and education, the future success of modern agriculture and rural America will be in the hands of our current students. Frontier Cooperative invests in the education of our young people, so they can improve upon the future of agriculture in Nebraska,” said Jeremy Wilhelm, Chief Executive Officer of Frontier Cooperative. “We want to congratulate the achievements of our area high school students, and we wish them the best in their future endeavors.”

How have you experienced Frontier this last year? That’s a question I use when starting employee and producer meetings. When we stop and think about it, we realize that there are numerous ways we have experienced Frontier in the past year. Common examples I hear are ‘I saw a semi on the highway’ or ‘I saw a sprayer in a field.’ Maybe you saw an employee in the community, helping at a county fair, or participating in a town celebration. Perhaps an employee was judging the 4H/FFA contest your child was competing in.
