Graduate uses scholarship to pursue ag business degree

Devon Gaines, a 2018 graduate of Peabody-Burns High School, is using a $1,000 scholarship from Lang Diesel, Inc. in Hillsboro to pursue a degree in ag business at Butler Community College in El Dorado. He plans to transfer to Kansas State University to finish his education.

Lang Diesel presented the award as an AGCO dealer scholarship, one of 1,829 awarded annually through the National FFA organization and its sponsors.

Gaines’ selection was based on his leadership, academic record, FFA and other school and community activities, supervised agricultural experience, and future goals.

His supervised agricultural experience was in beef production and diversified crop management.
