Nebraska Corn Board awards Block & Bridle Scholarship

Students are key partners to success in agriculture because of their desire to gain more knowledge and seek opportunities to partner in the industry.

The Nebraska Corn Board is proud to partner with UNL’s Block & Bridle Club this year to provide a $500 scholarship to an outstanding student member. This opportunity was created to show the partnership of the corn industry for future leaders in agriculture. 

Students qualifying for the scholarship over the past year had to meet the certain criteria for club involvement, academic excellence and professional development. Many applications were submitted, but four finalists were chosen and interviewed. These finalists were recognized recently at the Block & Bridle Annual Banquet by Board director, Bob Dickey - a past honoree of Block & Bridle.

The finalists were:
  • Hannah Kesterson, freshman in Food Science and Technology from Alliance 
  • Valerie Matulka, sophomore in Agribusiness from Thedford 
  • Laura Gorecki, freshman in Animal Science from Farwell 
  • Kolin Scheele, freshman in Animal Science from Odell
    (l to r): Kolin Scheele, Laura Gorecki, Valerie Matulka, Hanna Kesterson
The recipient of the Nebraska Corn Board scholarship is Laura Gorecki. Congratulations!
