The Kansas Livestock Foundation (KLF) has awarded 21 scholarships totaling $23,000 for the 2019-20 school year. Five Kansas State University students will receive awards through the Merck Animal Health Cartridges for Cash program. This includes three College of Veterinary Medicine students awarded $1,500 scholarships and two animal science students presented $1,000 scholarships.
Veterinary students receiving Cartridges for Cash scholarships are Joel Nelson, son of Jerry and Jo Ann Nelson from Soldier; Alexis Pedrow, daughter of Jeff and Teresa Pedrow of Richmond; and Boyd Roenne, son of Jason and Heather Roenne from Meriden.
Animal science students earning Cartridges scholarships are junior Ryann Allison, daughter of Tim and Carol Allison of Fort Scott, and senior Kyndall Norris, daughter of Kirk and Janice Norris of Riley.
Cartridges for Cash scholarships are funded by Ralgro and Revalor cartridges being turned in to Merck representatives, taken to a KLA county meeting or brought to the KLA Convention in Wichita in December. Each cartridge is worth 25¢ toward KLF scholarships.
