Two FC students receive ACF scholarships

Allyson Oliver and Ella Wiginton of Franklin County are among recipients of the Tagged for Greatness Scholarship from the Alabama Cattlemen’s Association Foundation. Each received the award at the ACA Foundation Scholarship Banquet in June.

Oliver, a graduate of Russellville High School, said she plans to attend the University of North Alabama to major in nursing. Wiginton, a graduate of Belgreen High School, said she plans to attend the Auburn University to major in sustainable biomaterials and packaging.

They were two of 84 scholarship recipients awarded more than $81,000 in scholarship by the Alabama Cattlemen’s Foundation. The ACF serves to engage in educational and scientific activities to improve the beef cattle industry in Alabama and educate youth on the importance of beef cattle in Alabama. It provides the opportunity to make tax deductible donations for the educational work of the foundation and is largely funded by the sale of the Cowboy Tag vanity license plate.

Oliver is the daughter of Chad and Stephanie Oliver of Russellville. Wiginton is the daughter of Scott and Meleah Wiginton of Russellville.
