Recently, the Williamson County Farm Bureau and Texas State Technical College (TSTC) announced that they have finalized an agreement for vocational scholarships for Williamson County Farm Bureau members. Five thousand dollars per year will be provided by the Williamson County Farm Bureau for vocational scholarships for Williamson County youth whose families are members of Williamson County Farm Bureau. The TSTC Foundation will match the funds resulting in $10,000 per year in scholarships. The scholarships can be used for vocational training at any of the seven TSTC campuses.
“We think that because of the need for highly trained technicians such as diesel mechanics, electricians, plumbers, and HVAC specialists, more emphasis should be placed on students seeking vocational training,” Bob Avant, President of the Williamson County Farm Bureau Board of Directors said.
Michael Smith, Senior Field Development Officer for the Central Texas Region of TSTC said, “TSTC has a long history with Texas Farm Bureau and we are excited to be able to partner with the Williamson County Farm Bureau to provide a quality vocational training experience for the youth of Williamson County.”
