MACON — Savannah Austin of Jackson is one of 10 recipients of the 2019 Georgia Farm Bureau Scholarships for Agriculture for rising college juniors and seniors. Austin was awarded a $2,000 scholarship.

The scholarships recognize and assist college students pursuing degrees in agriculture or an ag-related degree at a college in the University System of Georgia, Berry College or Emmanuel College.

Austin, the daughter of Brandy Austin, is studying animal science at the University of Georgia. She is a member of the Georgia Cattlemen’s Association UGA chapter and the UGA Block and Bridle Club. She has earned certification in both the Beef Quality Assurance program and the Forage Testing program.

“The GFB Scholarship for Agriculture is one of the ways Georgia Farm Bureau contributes to the development of the future leaders of Georgia Agriculture,” said GFB President Gerald Long. “We’re happy to help them prepare for their careers in agriculture.”
