(BEDFORD) - A Bedford college student has been awarded a scholarship from Farm Credit Mid-America as part of the organization's commitment to developing the next generation of leaders in agriculture.

Carrie Flinn was awarded a $1,000 scholarship based on academic record, leadership qualities, and community and school involvement. Flinn attends Franklin College.

"Ushering in the next generation of agriculture is an important part of Farm Credit's mission to secure the future of our industry, and rewarding standout students is one way of recognizing the achievements of Indiana youth," said Tom Sloma, senior vice president financial services. "As future leaders of rural communities and farming, we are eager to support students who strive to achieve success in education and who have a passion for agriculture."

In total, Farm Credit Mid-America awarded 62 college scholarships across its four-state territory to its customers' children and grandchildren who are pursuing degrees related to agriculture.
