ECC’s Brant Friest receives Agribusiness Association of Iowa scholarship

Brant Freist accepts AAI scholarship

Each February, the Agribusiness Association of Iowa (AAI) Foundation hosts over 250 Iowa community college agriculture/agribusiness students at the Iowa State Fairgrounds. On February 12, 2020, Ellsworth’s Brant Friest, a second-year Farm Management major from Hubbard, was awarded a scholarship sponsored by Bayer Crop Science.

Friest was one of fifteen ag students, and the only ECC student, who walked away with a $1,000 scholarship to their current college during the Agribusiness Career Day (ABC Day). Industry members of AAI have helped sponsor the scholarships since the event’s inception in 2014. The AAI Foundation has raised $87,000 from 25 different companies since 2014 to provide these scholarships to Iowa community college ag students.
