Recipients will be recognized at the annual Beef Bust Show, the first Saturday of the Black Hills Stock Show, at the Central States Fairgrounds.
For many years, BHSSF has provided $34,000 in scholarships. Tiff Robertson, director of BHSSF, said the total amount to be awarded this year is $50,000.
“This is a great opportunity for us to continue to support the future of agriculture and help our rural communities continue to thrive. It is always satisfying to see some of the students we have supported, coming back to help their rural communities.”
“We have been able to achieve this exponential increase, due to the support of our membership, and annual and new events supported by members, sponsors and donors. We cannot thank everyone enough for their belief in the mission of this foundation,” said Robertson.
In addition to scholarships, BHSSF provides funding for the Children’s Home Association to enjoy a few hours of carnival rides during the Central States Fair. They have supported local fire departments and ranchers affected by the Atlas, Cotton Wood and Lemon disaster fires, they continue to support local fire departments, rural families with medical needs and much more.
The Scholarships Committee is made up of BHSSF Board Members: Tiff Robertson, Scott Sean, Tammy Ravalet, Vic Schilling, Loretta Hill and Terry Taylor. For more information contact bhssf.com Or call 605-545-7865.
