Denton student wins seed association scholarship

The Montana Seed Trade Association has been known for giving out an annual scholarship to the FFA. In 2014 the group decided to broaden their scholarships to include two scholarships each year to people working in the seed industry, as well as producers who use certified seed on their farms and their dependents. 

The Association gave two scholarships in both 2014 and 2015, and gave out six this year, including one to Denton native Joel DeVries.

Since 2014, Joel has received three scholarships from the Montana Seed Trade association. This year he received a $500 scholarship for the 2016-17 academic year. Joel is a senior at Montana State University, majoring in crop science. He works for Northern Seed, and plans to return to Denton to work in the family business, ClearView Seed after graduation. Joel was sponsored by Northern Seed and ClearView Seed.
