This year, we are proud to present our Molly Jean Feathergill $1000 scholarships to Farlin Anderson and Delanie Craighead:

Farlin Anderson will be attending UCSD as a political science major with an international relations emphasis. She also wants to double major in accounting & economics. She has a immense interest in the workings of government and feels accounting will be a useful skill to have. Farlin would also like go on to law school but first have a internship in a congressional representative or senator's office. She is very resilient and self-disciplined and excited for her college experience!!

Delanie Craighead will be attending UC Davis and plans to get a bachelor's degree in animal science and biology. Then she wants to earn her doctorate in veterinary medicine and go on to veterinary school. She has been interested in being a veterinarian since she was little. She fell in love with the idea of being to help animals and being able to study science and animal life. Her career will mean the world to her and will allow her to help make the world a better place to both animals and their owners!

Delanie's scholarship was provided from the Bowman family fund.

The following two studens were each awarded the Shirley Somes Continuation Scholarship for 2019.
