Thank you to everyone that joined us last night for the May Virtual Equine Coffee Hour where we celebrated the strong partnership with the Michigan Mounted Police. Check-out the full session here if you were unable to attend.
Eleven outstanding Michigan State University (MSU) students pursuing livestock industry-related programs of study for the 2021-22 academic year were recently awarded $30,000 in scholarships by the Michigan Livestock Industry Scholarship Foundation (MLISF). Foundation President, Pete Blauwiekel said, “simply getting good grades is not enough to be recognized with one of these scholarships”. In addition to academic achievement, the scholarship’s criteria include extracurricular leadership and involvement, written and oral communication skills, and enthusiasm in pursuing a livestock (beef cattle, sheep, swine, equine or meat products) industry career. “Those individuals selected for this honor have a clear passion and demonstrated involvement in the Michigan animal industry and a commitment to its future improvement”, said Blauwiekel.
Join us on May 17th from 7pm to 8pm via Zoom for the May Virtual Equine Coffee Hour where we will connect and highlight the mounted police.
