Beth Klein, daughter of Dan and Lynn Klein, was recently awarded a $1,000 scholarship from the Hintzsche Companies headquartered in Maple Park.
Beth has spent countless hours helping out on the family farm and has been involved in both 4-H and FFA throughout high school. Other interests include volleyball, track and field, and numerous community service projects. Because of her keen interest and aptitude in math and science, along with her love of agriculture, Beth has decided to pursue a career in mechanical engineering. She hopes to one day be in a position to design new products that will help to meet the changing needs and growing demand for efficiency and productivity within the ag industry. Beth plans to attend the University of Wisconsin in Platteville.
Hintzsche Scholarship for Agriculture applicants are evaluated by an independent panel of agri-business professionals and educators. Evaluations are based on scholastic achievement, leadership activities and a written essay.
