CAFNR junior Carah Hart is this year’s recipient of the $5,000 Glenn Kummerow Memorial Scholarship. The scholarship is awarded by the National Association of Farm Broadcasting (NAFB) foundation to continue education. The scholarship is funded by donations to the NAFB and their major annual fundraising auction. It was awarded Wednesday, Nov. 9, 2011.
Hart is pursuing a degree in Agricultural Journalism at MU and aspires to become a farm director for a Midwest radio station or network.
“Carah came into our program with a true love of radio and farm broadcasting. She has taken advantage of every opportunity to continue to grow and improve her skills,” said Sharon Wood-Turley, program chair, MU Science and Agricultural Journalism.
Following her freshman year, Hart obtained an internship with the Missouri Farm Bureau, assisting with their multimedia efforts. During the fall 2010 semester she interned with the Missouri Farm Alliance focusing on social media. Other professional experience includes an internship with Brownfield Ag News and, most recently, working at the Missouri Soybean Association.
“She is a real credit to our program,” said Wood-Turley
