The REA Scholarship Committee would like to recognize Carley Zimmerman as the 2018-2019 scholarship winner. Carley is a sophomore at The University of Illinois studying Agriculture Education. Carley is a member of U of I's Sigma Alpha Professional Sorority, which is a professional agricultural sorority that focuses on agriculture education. Carley is also the assistant manager at Prarieland Feeds in Savoy.
Carley shared that, "As a high school student, I was inspired by my agriculture teacher, Mrs. Bunting. Mrs. Bunting helped me to get out of my comfort zone and made me a more outgoing person. Seeing Mrs. Bunting interacting with other students and acting as a mentor to them has shown me how much of an impact you can have on a student."
We wish Carley the best of luck!
