The Stevens County Cattlemen’s Association recently awarded two local students with $500 scholarships to help fund their college educations. Awards were given to Josie Nielsen (left) and Larissa Sweat (right). Nielsen, the daughter of SCCA President Scott Nielsen (pictured center), plans to attend Whitworth University this fall to pursue a B.A. in Primary Education. Sweat, the daughter of SCCA Treasurer Larry Sweat, plans to continue her college education at Eastern Washington University, pursuing a B.A. in Secondary Education. SCCA provides annual scholarship opportunities for youth in the community, encouraging young people to make a difference in the world with the values and work ethic they learned from ranching.
