The DeKalb County Soil and Water Conservation District (SWCD) is excited to announce that Logan Bend, from Earlville, was selected to receive the 2021 Simonson Scholarship. Logan is an exemplary student academically, as well as a dedicated and engaged member to his local FFA chapter. Logan will receive a $1000 scholarship that will aid him in his pursuit of a degree in agribusiness from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. Funds for the Simonson Scholarship were provided by donations from the Simonson family. Through this Scholarship, we can encourage and support those who will become our future leaders in agriculture or natural resources, and we believe that Logan has those characteristics to do so. Congratulations to Logan and his family!
