Randall E. Black, CEO and President of First Citizens Community Bank, has announced that Devin Remley of Roaring Branch, PA has been awarded the First Citizens Ag Scholarship for the 2014-2015 academic year.
The $1,000 scholarship has been awarded annually since 2012 to a senior high school student who will continue his or her education in an agricultural-related field after high school graduation. Students are awarded the scholarship on the basis of academic merit, and current involvement in activities or experiences which demonstrate the applicant's dedication to agriculture, with preference given to students who are customers, or who have family members as customers.
Remley was selected for his involvement in the FFA, 4-H, and the Future Business Leaders of America, and his dedication to his family's farm operation, Countryview Family Farms.
"Devin is a great example of what happens when we as a community invest in our youth," stated Randall E. Black. "We wish Devin the best as he takes this next step in life. Penn State is getting another one of the Northern Tier's best!"
Devin is a 2014 graduate of Liberty High School, and plans to study Animal Science and Agronomy at Penn State. He resides on the family farm in Roaring Branch.
First Citizens also awards two $1,000 scholarships to Mansfield University each year. To apply for any of the First Citizens scholarships, go to www.firstcitizensbank.com/community/scholarship-opportunities.html.
