Means awarded Alabama Ag Credit scholarship

Kerra Means of Eutaw and a graduate of Demopolis High School was selected as an Alabama Ag Credit scholarship recipient.

While Alabama Ag Credit has historically provided scholarship funds to the two land grant universities in its territory, Auburn University and Tuskegee University, this is the first year it has awarded scholarships directly to students of customers. Unlike many scholarship programs, applications were accepted for not only those looking to attend a four- or two-year college, but also for those attending a technical or vocational school.

Vice President and Relationship Manager Jason Abrams, who covers eight counties in West Alabama stated, “We are very proud of Kerra and greatly appreciate the relationship we have with her family. We look forward to seeing all her accomplishments as she pursues her career through further education.”

To qualify, students had to be graduating seniors and have parents or guardians who are customers of Alabama Ag Credit.

Recipients are further selected based on academic achievements, extra-curricular activities and an essay.

Kerra graduated this spring from DHS and plans to attend Samford University in the fall.
