TCGA Scholarship Program
A Commitment To Agriculture

Texas Cotton Ginners and Cotton Farming have always had a long-term commitment to support students at Texas Tech University’s College of Agricultural Sciences and Natural Resources.

That commitment will continue this year when the magazine contributes a portion of the revenue from the sale of ads in the TCGA printed program to the TCGA scholarship program. This year’s check will be presented on Friday night, April 4, at the TCGA awards banquet at the Overton Hotel in Lubbock.

“It always gives our organization a good feeling to support ag students at Texas Tech,” says TCGA Executive Vice President Tony Williams. “As we always like to say, it’s an investment in ag’s future.”

Jane Piercy, Texas Tech’s director of development and external relations for the university, echoes those comments and says this financial support is vital.

“Our ag students are a special group, and we welcome the support that TCGA and Cotton Farming continue to give them,” she says.

Six students are recipients of this year’s TCGA scholarships:

• Caitlyn Brown, sophomore, Ag and Applied Economics major, Turkey, Texas.
• Jessica Burner, senior, Ag and Applied Economics major, San Angelo, Texas.
• Reggie Halfmann, junior, Agribusiness major, Garden City, Texas.
• Brian Hirt, senior, Ag and Applied Economics major, Garden City, Texas.
• Jacob Muehlstein, sophomore, Agri-business major, Stamford, Texas.
• Carly Stroud, junior, Ag and Applied Economics major, Hondo, Texas.

In addition, two students – Whitney Keith of Lincoln, Texas, and Layne Norton of Carlsbad, N.M. – are recipients of the Rocky King Memorial Scholarship.
