  • Three Camden County students were awarded scholarships from the University of Missouri College of Agriculture, Food and Natural Resources.
    Brian Urwiler has been awarded the Wurdack Natural Resources Research Scholarship.
    Urwiler, a sophomore majoring in biochemistry, is the son of Deborah and Tom Urwiler.
    The Wurdack Scholarship was established in 1965 as a bequest of Hugo Wurdack. This fund has provided valuable financial assistance over the years for students pursuing a course of study in agriculture, food or natural resources. Mr. Wurdack owned a 1200-acre farm located in Crawford and Dent Counties of the Ozark region.
    Ashley Wolfe, of Climax Springs, has been awarded the Elyzabeth Schell Scholarship.
    Wolfe, majoring in animal sciences, is the daughter of C. Mark Wolfe and Deborah A. Wolfe.
    The Elyzabeth Schell Scholarship was established in 1981 by the estate of Elyzabeth Schell. The Schells were in the dairy business in the Kansas City area and had a strong interest in agriculture.
    Raschely Flint, of Roach, has been awarded the Hellensmith Horticulture Scholarship.
    Flint, a junior majoring in plant sciences, is the daughter of Debbie and Marcel Flint.
    The Hellensmith Horticulture Scholarship shall be awarded to students who graduated from a Missouri high school and are majoring in plant sciences with emphasis in horticulture.
    “Scholarships enable us to recruit and retain outstanding students to our college,” said Bryan Garton, associate dean of academic programs. 
    "As the cost of earning a college degree continues to increase, it is rare to find a student who does not need financial assistance,” Garton said. “Our goal over the next 10 years is to increase the amount of scholarship funding from approximately $1 million to $1.5 million.” 
     Information on scholarships and the college is available from Garton at 573-882-0089 or from high school counselors.
