Educational Mini-Grant Awarded to McCracken County Farm Bureau

 

Louisville, KY (December 1, 2017) – McCracken County Farm Bureau was honored as one of six recipients of Kentucky Farm Bureau (KFB) Educational Mini-Grant. All six recipients were recognized during KFB’s annual meeting in Louisville.

Bettie Bean of McCracken County accepts an award of recognition from Vicki Bryant, chair of the Kentucky Farm Bureau state Women’s Committee. 

The Mini-Grant is a special project of the Kentucky Farm Bureau Women’s Program and administered through the Kentucky Farm Bureau Education Foundation. One-time grants of up to $500 are offered to county Farm Bureaus on a competitive basis to help fund projects that result in increased agricultural literacy. Priority is given to those programs demonstrating a need for financial support.

McCracken County Farm Bureau was recognized for purchasing books to occupy five bookcases constructed by the McCracken County High School-one for each of the five McCracken County Elementary Schools.

In addition to McCracken County Farm Bureau’s award, Mini-Grants were also given to the Farm Bureaus in Boyle, Fayette, Lewis, Marion, and Webster counties.
