W.P. and T.M. Phillips Memorial Scholarships Awarded

The W.P. and T.M. Phillips Memorial Scholarship was established by Mrs. Thelma M. Phillips in memory of her late husband, William “Bill” Phillips, to honor his love of farming. Thelma and Bill spent a lifetime together enjoying farm life and working in agribusiness. This scholarship provides support to students who wish to continue the farming tradition which Bill and Thelma loved so much.
