Copp Scholarship Awarded to Four Local Students

Agriculture Education Trust awards local students

 

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE - June 20, 2017

WELLSBORO, PA – Four Tioga County students have been named the 2017 recipients of $72,800 in scholarships from the William Bowen Copp and Graydon S. Copp Agriculture Education Trust. The Scholarship Committee hosted a luncheon for scholarship recipients and their parents at the Timeless Destination in Wellsboro.

The 2017 recipients include:

Tyler Boyer, son of Lee (Deceased) and Melissa Boyer of Liberty, PA, is a graduate of North Penn-Liberty Jr/Sr High School and plans to attend West Virginia University, majoring in Forrest Resources Management.

Morgan Cady, daughter of Jeff and Lynnette Cady of Westfield, PA, is a graduate of Cowanesque Valley High School and plans to attend SUNY Cobleskill, majoring in Animal Science.

Brody Coolidge, son of Lance and Stacey Coolidge of Wellsboro, PA, is a graduate of Wellsboro Area High School and plans to attend Penn State Altoona, majoring in Agricultural Education. He will begin college in the fall of 2018 and will spend this year as the State Treasurer for the Pennsylvania FFA.

Jarrett Good, son of Daryl and Carolyn Good of Westfield, PA, is a graduate of Cowanesque Valley High School and plans to attend Alfred State, majoring in Agricultural Technology.

The Copp trust was created under the Last Will and Testament of Graydon S. Copp, who died July 7, 2002. He and his brother, William Bowen Copp, operated a farm in Charleston and Covington Townships in Tioga County.

“Graydon’s generosity will continue for a long time, as Graydon’s intent for this trust is to provide scholarships to well-deserving Tioga County, PA high school seniors who pursue high education in an agricultural field,” said Deborah Scott, Citizens & Northern’s Executive Vice President and Trust Officer.

Scott said the field has a broad spectrum of possibilities and might include education in the field of animal sciences, agricultural business management, bio-resource, crop and soil science, fisheries and wildlife, food science and technology and general agriculture to name a few.

The scholarship recipients were chosen by the Scholarship Committee, which consists of the Trustee and the superintendents from each school district in Tioga County. The Committee determines the number of recipients and amounts awarded annually. The scholarship awards may be used to help pay tuition, books and room and board charges. As Trustee, Citizens & Northern invests and manages the funds in the account and administers the scholarship application and distribution process.

Applicants for the scholarship are sought each year, with the deadline being April 15th annually. Applicants must be high school seniors accepted to accredited colleges or universities in programs leading to degrees in curriculums directly related to agriculture. In addition, applicants may have grade point averages of at least 2.0, have financial need and must have been Tioga County, PA residents for at least six months.

For more information on this scholarship or to obtain an application, interested students should visit cnbankpa.com or contact Citizens & Northern Bank’s Trust and Financial Management Group at 1-800-487-8784 or their high school guidance counselor.

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