2011 Cloverdale Grad Recognized With $1,000 Cargill Scholarship

Cargill has awarded a $1,000 college scholarship to Samuel Jordan, a 2011 graduate of Cloverdale High School. In addition, as part of the Cargill Community Scholarship Program, the high school will also receive $200 from Cargill in Jordan’s honor to support the school library.

“We are pleased to recognize Samuel with this award, and Cloverdale High School for its dedicated work, as well,” said Jim Simpson, manager of Cargill

Ag Horizons in Linden, Indiana. “Cargill supports education programs in our communities because today’s young people are tomorrow’s leaders.”

Each year, 350 students living in communities where Cargill operates, receive an award through the Cargill Community Scholarship Program. Students are selected based on academic achievement and leadership in school and community activities. This year nearly 2,000 students applied for this program. The National FFA administers this program on behalf of Cargill, though recipients do not need to be FFA members.

Along with the Cargill Community Scholarship Program, the company also provides 50 scholarships for children of U.S. employees. All the programs contribute to Cargill’s approach to corporate responsibility, which is company-wide commitment to apply its global knowledge and experience to help meet complex economic, environmental and social challenges wherever it does business.
