Millersville student awarded agriculture scholarship to Mizzou

MILLERSVILLE, MO (KFVS) -

Teagan Schnurbusch of Millersville, MO. has been awarded the Elyzabeth Schell Scholarship and the Excellence from the University of Missouri College of Agriculture, Food and Natural Resources for the 2015-2016 academic year.

"Scholarships enable us to recruit and retain outstanding students to our college," said Bryan Garton, associate dean of academic programs.

Teagan Schnurbusch, a freshman majoring in Animal Sciences, is the daughter of Pat Schnurbusch and Jennifer Schnurbusch.

The Elyzabeth Schell Scholarship was established in 1981 by the estate of Elysabeth Schell.

The Schells were in the dairy business in the Kansas City area and had a strong interest in agriculture. Scholarships are awarded to students whose parents are Missouri landowning farmers or ranchers.

The Excellence scholarship is awarded by MU Financial Aid to students who are in the tip 50 percent of their high school graduating class and have a composite ACT score of 27 or higher.

"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."
