An area high school student has received a scholarship toward his studies in an agricultural-related major.  Ty Sexton of Ainsworth has been awarded a $1500 scholarship by the Iowa Soybean Association, and he plans to study agriculture engineering at Iowa State University.  Sexton is one of ten recipients of the scholarship in the state, and Sexton says he’d like to work with a major agricultural equipment manufacturer, developing products.

Scholarship committee chairman Curt Sindergard says there were well over one hundred applicants this year.  The money for the scholarships is raised through the annual Iowa Soy Golf Classic.
