Stuart New Scholarship

This scholarship was initiated by the Albion Chapter of FFA in 1959 to honor the
memory of Stewart New. Mr. New taught agriculture at Albion High School from
1944 until1958 and served as the Future Farmers of America supervisor. He
encouraged and supported the education of students in our community who were
interested in working in the agricultural field. This scholarship, in turn, is in support
of current students who have demonstrated a work ethic and goal related to an
agricultural career in the local community. Given by Dr. and Mrs. Ronald Harling.

Additional Notes: The intent of this scholarship is to support students with financial

learning in the agricultural field through any post high school programs.
