    JJC student receives Chicago Farmers scholarship

    Taylar Beal, a second year student at Joliet Junior College, is a recent recipient of a scholarship from The Chicago Farmers. In a thank you note to TCF, Taylar wrote, “I was very excited and humbled by the news that I was a recipient of a generous scholarship from The Chicago Farmers…I am thankful I can continue my education at Joliet Junior College as it has been so much more than I had ever expected. “

    Taylar related that when she began her education at JJC she had intended to pursue studies in animal science, but she has broadened her options for the future and now is considering pursuing areas related to dairy science. She shared that she had an opportunity this summer to complete an internship at a cattle feed lot, which afforded her new opportunities and made her aware of other options available to her.

    Noting that she was grateful to The Chicago Farmers for awarding her a scholarship, Taylar also shared in her thank you note, “I am very excited to get started with my second year and I am looking forward to transferring to a four-year school to continue my education.  I am looking at several schools that excel in agriculture and I am very much looking forward to expanding my knowledge and experience.”
