Josephburg Ag Society Scholarship

Josephburg Ag Society Scholarship

The DOUG MASCHMEYER SCHOLARSHIP ~ $1000.00

In memory of our long time Director and volunteer, Doug Maschmeyer, we are offering a third, $1000 scholarship. Doug always took an active roll in his community. Lending a helping hand was his nature, he was a great mentor in his role as a 4-H leader.  Many a winter night he could be found selling 50/50 tickets at the local Josephburg Presents concert series. He would strike up a conversation, find something in common and end the visit with a few less tickets in his hand. Doug always had something positive to say, words of encouragement and a smile on his face. We put this scholarship forward in hopes of those who share Doug’s love of community and mentorship will apply.

As of August 2018, Josephburg Ag Society is proud to sponsor THREE, $1000 scholarships for those seeking post secondary assistance.

Please read over the requirements carefully and submit information accordingly. Incomplete submissions will not be considered. Our committee is hard at work choosing once the deadline passes and successful recipients contacted before the end of the year.
