2016 Insuring a Brighter Tomorrow scholarship winners announced

The South Dakota Farmers Union Foundation, in cooperation with Farmers Union Insurance Agency, have announced the recipients of the annual Insuring a Brighter Tomorrow scholarships.
Bailey Moody, daughter of Perry and Tracy Moody of Letcher and a 2016 graduate of Sanborn Central High School, and Rex Schlicht, son of Shelley Schlicht of Woonsocket and a 2016 graduate of Woonsocket High School, were recipients of this scholarship.
Twenty-five high school senior graduates from across South Dakota will share $25,000 in scholarships to be used to further their education at a South Dakota post-secondary school. Over the past 10 years, the Foundation has awarded more than $250,000 in scholarships.
Each of the 25 scholarship recipients will receive $1,000 to put toward their post-secondary education at a South Dakota college, university or technical school. The recipients were chosen from among a large pool of applicants. They were scored based on a combination of academic record, activities and awards, financial need and an essay relating to how they will “Insure a Brighter Tomorrow” in South Dakota.
Farmers Union Insurance agents throughout the state fund this scholarship program administered by the Farmers Union Foundation. “Our insurance agents are committed to building a brighter future in South Dakota,” said Jason Wells, Regional Manager of Farmers Union Insurance Agency.
“This is a remarkable group and they make me excited about the future of our great state. We’re choosing to invest in these outstanding individuals to help them pursue their goals ad aspirations.”
