Nebraska Cattlemen Foundation Announces Scholarship Recipients 

 

The Nebraska Cattlemen Foundation (NCF) is pleased to announce it has awarded $51,000 in scholarships to students furthering their education goals in the 2017-2018 academic year. 

"The Foundation strongly believes in the importance of a sound education for tomorrow's industry leaders," says Jeff Heldt, president of the Nebraska Cattlemen Foundation. "Due to the generosity of many donors and participants in the Retail Value Steer Challenge, we are able to award theses scholarships to these outstanding students."
