CLARE - Autumn Salis, daughter of Keith and Emily Salis and a recent graduate of Sycamore High School, was awarded a $1,500 scholarship from the Hintzsche Companies headquartered in Maple Park. Hintzsche Scholarship for Agriculture applicants are evaluated by an independent panel of agri-business professionals and educators. Evaluations are based on scholastic achievement, leadership activities, and a written essay.
Autumn was one of six recipients to receive this award in 2014. During high school, Autumn was involved in FFA, holding numerous offices, including chapter president for two years, 4-H, Key Club, Girl Scouts, National Honor Society, Student Advisory, among other activities. She stated in her essay that FFA, and her ag adviser in particular, had a lot to do with her decision to go into agriculture education. Autumn will attend North Carolina University in the fall, majoring in ag education.
