Remember when you were in school and the month of May signaled summer was just around the corner? The teachers were trying to teach their final lesson plan, dates had been set on the calendar for final exams and the whole school was on the “Countdown”, especially the seniors.
The Beefmaster Educational Endowment Foundation (B.E.E.F.) is on the count down and waiting in anticipation for the scholarship applications that will be arriving from graduating high school seniors and current college students. The scholarship information has been posted on the BBU website along with all the necessary details. Once the applications are received, they are reviewed by a scholarship committee and finalists are selected. The winners of the scholarships are announced at the JBBA convention banquet in July. B.E.E.F. will issue up to four $1,000 scholarships to be used for the recipient’s fall tuition.
B.E.E.F. feels strongly about investing in the lives of these hard working students as they pursue their education and fulfill their dreams. The Foundation has been giving scholarships to worthy recipients since 2010. So, let the “Countdown” begin to see who will be awarded the scholarships for the Fall 2016 semester.
