Clackamas Soil and Water Conservation District is proud to announce that our 2018 scholarship recipients are Danielle Bull from Damascus and Ethan Gallant from Boring. These awards of $3,000 each are available to Clackamas County high school graduates or students currently residing in Clackamas County who will be considered a sophomore or higher in fall 2018. Award recipients must be working towards an associate, bachelor, or graduate degree in the fields of agriculture (including horticulture), natural resource science, or a related discipline.
Danielle Bull will be a graduate student in fall 2018. She attends Oregon State University and is working toward a Master of Science degree in agricultural education. Danielle was a 2012 graduate of Clackamas High School where she was active in the North Clackamas FFA Chapter showing dairy cows. In 2014, she was selected as the Oregon Dairy Princess-Ambassador.
During the summer, Danielle works at Lady-Lane Farm in Mulino. Her future plan is to become a high school agricultural instructor.
Ethan Gallant will be a sophomore in fall 2018. He attends Eastern Oregon University and is working toward a Bachelor of Science degree in agricultural science. Ethan was a 2017 graduate of Central Catholic High School and was active in 4-H club and high school sports. He is currently playing football at Eastern Oregon University and is studying agriculture with the goal of making his family farm more efficient and productive.
During the summer, Ethan puts in about 60 hours a week on the family farm in Boring. His long-term goal is to buy his own farm and raise beef cattle and produce hay.
The Clackamas Soil and Water Conservation District Board of Directors is pleased to honor these young scholars with scholarships as they work to protect natural resources and support agriculture for a sustainable future. This is the eighth year the District has offered scholarships to local students.
