The 2018 Farm Credit agriculture scholar class has been announced and included Reed Jostes, a graduate of Maroa-Forsyth High School.
Each scholar in the class earns $2,000 from FCI says Marketplace Initiatives Manager for FCI Beth Bolger.
Jostes says his passion for agriculture came at a young age when he would visit his grandmother's house. He is a member of FFA and will be attending Southern Illinois University in Carbondale this upcoming fall. But Jostes explains his fall plans could change as he runs for a major candidate position in FFA.
Jostes plans to study agricultural education with plans of teaching high school agriculture and helping grow and shape future generations of agricultural leaders.
