    TCF scholarship awarded to Iowa State student

    Iowa State University student David Turnis is a recipient of a $1,500 Chicago Farmers’ scholarship. Currently a sophomore majoring in agricultural studies, David has a GPA of 3.39. His goal is to complete his degree at Iowa State and return to his family’s farming operation to farm with his brother.

    While at Iowa State, David has been involved in a number of clubs. Among these are Farm Operations Club, Collegiate Beef Team, Beginning Farmers Network, and Agricultural Marketing and Management Organization. He said he serves on several committees in these clubs and enjoys learning about agriculture with his fellow students. David also has a part time job to help pay for his tuition. “It’s not always easy to juggle school, work and extracurricular activities, and I am truly grateful for the assistance that I am receiving because of your thoughtful gift,” David wrote to The Chicago Farmers.

    David went on to write, “Receiving this scholarship really makes me work even harder to improve my current GPA and become the best student I can be. After graduation I look forward to being able to give back to the community once I begin my career in agriculture. I thank you for your confidence and willingness to help me achieve my goals.”
