Grimmway Farms Awards College Scholarships to New Cuyama Area Students

SANTA BARBARA, CA, August 10, 2017 – Grimmway Farms today announced the awarding of college scholarships to two recent New Cuyama area high school graduates as part of its annual Rod and Bob Grimm Memorial Scholarship Program.

The Rod and Bob Grimm Memorial Scholarship Program is a company-wide initiative designed to help high-achieving high school seniors pursue their dreams of a college education. Award qualifications include superior academic performance, and all scholarship applicants must also have a parent employed by Grimmway Farms, a global produce leader.

“We’re proud to help these young people pursue their academic dreams at colleges and universities across the nation,” said Grimmway Farms president, Jeff Huckaby. “By investing in them, we are investing in the future success of our employees and their families, as well as the communities where we operate.”

This year’s recipients include two local academic standouts Itzel Estrada and Idalia Estrada – recent graduates of Cuyama Valley High School.

Since its 1997 launch, Grimmway Farms’ Scholarship Program has awarded more than 565 scholarships for a total of more than $1.5 million to graduating high school seniors. The company continues to expand the program, awarding 65 scholarships in 2017.

Scholarships are based on scholastic achievement and provide students attending two-year colleges with an annual $1,250 stipend, and students attending four-year universities with an annual $2,500 stipend – and are renewable for four years. This year’s recipients will attend a variety of schools, including UC Berkeley, UC Davis, UCLA, UC Irvine, Cal Poly San Luis Obispo, and the University of Oregon.
