ACA awards foundation scholarship

Bo LeMay received the trade school scholarship at the Alabama Cattlemen’s Foundation scholarship banquet May 5 in Wetumpka, Ala. The son of TJ and Michelle LeMay of Russellville, he is set to graduate from Belgreen High School and plans to attend Itawamba Community College to pursue a degree in Diesel Mechanics.

Lemay is one of 127 scholarship recipients awarded more than $113,000 in scholarships by the Alabama Cattlemen’s Foundation (ACF). 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.

Throughout the year, the ACF supports numerous organizations and events which help to educate and train future generations of the livestock industry. The ACF has awarded scholarship money each year to Alabama youth with more than $1.2 million being awarded to date.
