Citizens Christian Academy student Jenna Williams has been named recipient of a Georgia Foundation for Agriculture (GFA) Scholarship.
Williams is one of seven graduating seniors statewide selected to receive a $3,000 GFB scholarship. Three other graduating seniors were awarded $4,000 scholarships. The GFA scholarships recognize deserving and outstanding college students pursuing degrees in agriculture or ag-related fields at colleges in the University System of Georgia, Berry College or Emmanuel College.
“The Georgia Foundation for Agriculture is committed to investing in the future of Georgia agriculture by offering these scholarships to students who want to pursue careers in agriculture,” said GFA Board Chairman and GFB President Tom McCall. “Georgia Farm Bureau is proud to support the foundation’s efforts.”
Williams, the daughter of Gina Williams, plans to attend Abraham Baldwin Agricultural College in Tifton, where she intends to major in agribusiness. Williams has maintained the highest academic average for her class throughout high school and achieved perfect attendance from kindergarten through high school.
She served on the Mayor’s Youth Council and the Farm Bureau Young Farmers & Ranchers Junior Board of Directors, is a member of the National Honor Society, was named CCA STAR Student and received the Georgia Certificate of Merit. Her extensive service work includes reading agriculture-themed books to elementary students as a part of Farm Bureau’s Ag in the Classroom program.
