AFC Awards Scholarship to Alabama A&M University

Agricultural students attending Alabama A&M University will divvy up $5,000 in scholarship monies this fall, thanks to officials with Alabama Farm Credit and The Farm Credit Bank of Texas (FCBT) based in Austin, TX.

AFC President/CEO Ben Gore, CCO/Ralph Stewart and Wendy Tysinger, Director of Marketing and Public Relations, recently presented the check to Dr. Lloyd Walker, dean of the College of Agricultural, Life and Natural Sciences, during a brief meeting on the AAMU campus along with the students receiving the scholarships. “We consider it part of our mission to recognize and support youth in agriculture,” said Gore. “These bright, young students hold the reins of agriculture’s future.”
