Kiwanis Club of Kirksville Supports Area Students with Funds from Farmers Market

The Kiwanis Club of Kirksville is using proceeds from its annual Farmers Market to assist area students in pursuit of an agriculture degree at Truman.

Dahn Kemp of Clarence, Mo., was recently selected to receive the Kiwanis Farmers Market Annual Scholarship in the amount of $1,000.  

Kemp, a freshman at Truman, is the son of Rick and Sharri Kemp and a graduate of North Shelby High School. He is a member of the University football team and serves as the historian for the Collegiate Farm Bureau.

In addition to school, Kemp currently manages one farm on his own and another with his father. He has been renting land since he was a sophomore in high school, and wants to own his own farm someday. After graduation he plans to return home and work with his family’s Angus cattle.

To be eligible for the Kiwanis Farmers Market Annual Scholarship, a student must meet the following criteria: majoring in agriculture; active involvement in service while in college; have a minimum grade point average of 3.0; and demonstrate participation and leadership in school and community activities.
