Thanks to the generous support of sponsors/donors, 1,883 scholarships were awarded through the National FFA organization's scholarship program.

Local Build Ford Tough recipients include Tory Wilson, Cedaredge High School; Alexeea Wilson, Cedaredge High School; and Lacey Rodriguez, Hotchkiss High School.

Tory and Alexeea are the children of Tory Wilson and Julia Vaughn. Tory plans to study engineering at the Colorado School of Mines.

"Without this scholarship I would not have the opportunities that I have right now," Tory said. "This organization stands for great ideals."

Alexeea plans to study animal science at Colorado State University. She hopes to become a large animal veterinarian.

Lacey is the daughter of Paul and Cathleen Rodriguez. She plans to attend Colorado Mesa University and would like to go into trauma nursing.

"I believe the strong morals that FFA as an organization has taught me and will continue to live through them," Rodriguez said.

Each scholarship is $1,000.

Selections were based on the applicant's leadership, academic record, FFA and other school and community activities, supervised agricultural or work experience in agricultural education, and future goals.
