John Rhodes was awarded the Tagged for Academic Excellence Scholarship at the Alabama Cattlemen’s Foundation Scholarship Banquet held Friday, May 3 in Wetumpka, AL. John is the son of Susan Rhodes of Brewton.
Rhodes attends Auburn University where he is pursuing a degree in Biological and Agricultural Technology Management. He was one of 113 scholarship recipients awarded over $110,250 in scholarship by the Alabama Cattlemen’s Foundation (ACF). The ACF serves to engage in educational and scientific activities to improve the beef cattle industry in Alabama and educate youth on the importance of beef cattle in Alabama. It provides the opportunity to make tax deductible donations for the educational work of the foundation and is largely funded by the sale of the “Cowboy Tag” vanity license plate.
Throughout the year, the ACF supports numerous organizations and events which help to educate and train future generations of the livestock industry. The ACF has awarded scholarship money each year to Alabama youth with more than $1.2 million being awarded to date.
