Gehl Foods, LLC Awards $25,000 in Student Scholarships through their Feed the Future Scholarship Program
May 31, 2018 – This week, Gehl Foods has demonstrated their commitment to higher education, and is announcing their 2018 Feed the Future Scholarship honorees. This annual scholarship program is awarding three $5,000 scholarships to dependents of Gehl Foods employees located at their Germantown, WI facility, and two $5,000 scholarships at their Lathrop, CA facility.
Scholarships were awarded based on scholastic achievement, community and volunteer involvement, and an interview with the committee. This year’s Germantown recipients are: Noah Bougie, the son of Gehl Foods employee Mark Bougie, Andrew Gawronski, the son of Gehl Foods employee Tom Gawronski, and Taylor Klokow, the daughter of Gehl Foods employee Liza Klokow.
“Gehl Foods is dedicated to empowering today's youth to be tomorrow's leaders,” says Marcos Mejia, Gehl Foods Vice President of Finance and Feed the Future Scholarship Committee Member. “We are thrilled and humbled to be in a position to offer financial assistance to the children of our dedicated work force. Narrowing down three honorees out of 17 applicants was no easy task, as the level of maturity, passion and direction from the candidates was unprecedented. Our goal is to continue to grow this program in service to our communities.”
The three local recipients will be presented with their scholarship at the All-Company meeting on June 4.
