Seniors pursuing studies in agriculture are invited to apply

 

by C&N Bank - February 21, 2018

WELLSBORO, PA. – High school seniors pursuing studies in agriculture are invited to apply for a scholarship offered through the William Bowen Copp and Graydon S. Copp Agriculture Education Trust.

Applicants are sought for the 2018 fall semester. The application deadline is April 15, 2018. An applicant must be a high school senior accepted to an accredited college, university or trade school in a program leading to a degree in a curriculum directly related to agriculture, have a cumulative grade point average of at least 2.0, demonstrate financial need, be Tioga County, PA resident for at least six months and graduate from a Tioga County High School.

Students interested in more information may contact Citizens & Northern Bank’s Trust and Financial Management Group at 800-487-8784, visit the C&N website at www.cnbankpa.com (Click on About > Community Matters > Scholarships & Grants) or their high school guidance counselors.

The $1.3 million William Bowen Copp and Graydon S. Copp Agriculture Education Trust will distribute scholarships annually. The trust was created under the Last Will and Testament of Graydon S. Copp, who died July 7, 2002. Graydon and his brother, William Bowen Copp, operated a farm located in Charleston and Covington townships in Tioga County, PA. The brothers lived and operated the same farm as their grandparents and parents until 1982 when William died. Neither brother ever married, but they were well known by their neighbors, friends and relatives as accomplished farmers and generous individuals.

The Copps were known for sharing their food, money, machinery and time with friends and neighbors. Graydon, who loved cats and was very active in hunting, flying, motorcycling and maintaining the family cemetery, always considered education very important. During World War II he dropped out of school to help his family on the farm. Following the war, he returned to school and graduated from the Charleston High School.

Graydon’s generosity will continue for years to come as his intent for this trust is to provide scholarships to well deserving Tioga County, PA high school seniors who pursue higher education in an agricultural field. This field has a broad spectrum of possibilities and might include education in the field of animal sciences, agricultural business management, bioresource, crop, diesel mechanics, and soil science, fisheries and wildlife, food science and technology and general agriculture, to name a few.

The scholarship recipients will be determined each year by the Scholarship Committee, which consists of the superintendents from Northern and Southern Tioga School Districts and the Wellsboro Area School District. The committee will decide the number of recipients and amounts awarded annually. The scholarship award may be used to help pay for tuition, books, and room and board. Citizens & Northern Bank Trust and Financial Management Group is the Trustee and administers the scholarship program.

The C&N Trust and Financial Management Group, a division of Citizens & Northern Bank, maintains offices in Wellsboro, Sayre, Towanda, Williamsport, Coudersport and Canisteo. The division, founded in 1960, provides a wide range of investment, trust and retirement plan services to individuals and organizations.
