Anderson awarded ag scholarship

Dana Anderson, daughter of Wes and Susan Anderson and a recent graduate of Indian Creek High School, was awarded a $1,500 scholarship from the Hintzsche Companies headquartered in Maple Park.

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. Anderson was one of six recipients to receive this award in 2014.

Anderson was involved in many different activities throughout high school, including: FFA, 4-H, Academic Bowl (numerous offices), drama club (president her junior and senior years), band, creative writing club (editor), cheerleading and dance. She was raised on a swine and grain farm and began helping out at an early age. She also enjoyed showing pigs.

Anderson is interested in many different avenues in the field of agriculture and aspires to be ag teacher one day. Influenced by her high school ag teacher, Anderson hopes to be able to spark other’s interest in what agriculture is all about and has to offer. Anderson will attend the University of Wisconsin-Platteville in the fall, majoring in agriculture education.

Hintzsche is a full-service ag retailer covering a multiple-county area in north central and northeastern Illinois.
