Cornell Pump has sponsored the Idaho Irrigation Equipment Association (IIEA) scholarship since the early 1990’s. This year, IIEA is pleased to give out $22,000 in scholarships to 36 deserving students. In total, IIEA has given our nearly 700 scholarships with a value of $422,500 to help Idaho students pursue their higher education goals.
Eric Ball is a freshman at the University of Idaho, and the recipient of the scholarship Cornell Pump sponsored. He is a double major in crop management and ag business. After graduation, Eric plans to return to the Treasure Valley to assist management of his family’s farm, as well as pursuing crop consulting or employment as an agricultural loan officer.
Congratulations to Eric, the other 35 recipients for 2017, and the 699 recipients since the inception of the scholarship. Best of luck!
