Amy Staton receives Kentucky Farm Bureau’s 2013 Women’s Educational GrantPosted on Dec 7, 2012
The $1,500 Women’s Educational Grant is awarded annually to a female non-traditional student who is interested in resuming her education after leaving school to fulfill either family or work-related responsibilities.
Staton raises beef cattle, corn, wheat and alfalfa with her husband in Salt Lick, KY, and is a staff technologist and instructor for the Morehead State University Veterinary Technology Program. She is also a 4.0 student pursuing additional education herself, participating in MSU’s Education Technology Leadership EdD Program. Staton additionally volunteers her time and leadership skills to many industry, non-profit and civic organizations in the community.
In her grant application, Staton stated that completing the additional education program will allow her to provide a better learning environment for her students and help her give students a solid educational foundation.
With nearly 500,000 member families statewide, Kentucky Farm Bureau is the state’s largest general farm organization. Approximately 1,700 members attended KFB’s 93rd annual meeting, December 5-8, to recognize this year’s individual and organizational achievements as well as adopt policy for 2013.
