With a $10,000 donation, the Foundation helped Warner University establish a new Agricultural Studies Program. Students in this new program experience ag-related content during their freshman and sophomore years. Internships, field trips, mentors and lectures by industry leaders help provide early guidance to those choosing an ag degree. The Foundation continues its support by providing scholarships for Warner agriculture students. In 2021, the Foundation donated $5,000 to support both scholarships and field trips for ag students.
