The Kansas Livestock Foundation (KLF) has awarded 28 scholarships totaling $31,000 for the 2020-21 school year. Five students attending the Kansas State University College of Veterinary Medicine each were given a $1,500 scholarship through the Merck Animal Health Cartridges for Cash program. Recipients of the stipends include Lauren Herd of Wichita, daughter of David Herd and Susan and Russ Bower; Sarah Krueger from Lebo, daughter of Joyce and Dwight Krueger; Leah Metzger of Towanda, daughter of Bob Metzger and Jill Olson; Jason Paine from Hutchinson, son of David and Colleen Paine; and Mikaleigh Woodward of St. George, daughter of Jude and Mindy Wilson.
Cartridges for Cash scholarships are funded by empty Ralgro and Revalor cartridges being turned in to Merck representatives or KLA staff. Each cartridge is worth 25¢.
