Gabrielle Dirusso, of Middletown, was selected as one of 60 College of Agriculture and Life Sciences students to receive the Fred Foreman Scholarship.
Dirusso, who studies animal science at Iowa State University, was selected for a combination of classroom performance and out-of-class leadership and volunteerism. The Foreman Scholarship is awarded to top students who serve the college by acting as peer mentors and club officers and representing the college on competitive teams with a preference for students in activities that assist in recruiting prospective students.
The scholarship is renewable and can be received by students a maximum of three times to encourage continued participation. The scholarship also features 55 $1,000 awards and five $5,000 awards, with top-performing student leaders competing for the top five awards.
