At the Texas Rice Council meeting on Thursday in Katy, the Stoesser family presented the 2023 Ray Stoesser Memorial Scholarship Recipient Gayla Rose with a scholarship check for $5000. Gayla, a high school senior at Liberty High School in Liberty, TX, plans to attend Texas A&M in the fall to study Agribusiness.
"The Stoesser scholarship has gifted me with the opportunity to continue my education, a key factor in reaching my goal to advocate for the future of agriculture," Rose said. "My degree in agribusiness will help educate the public on the importance of agriculture, specifically the significance of the rice industry."
In addition to the monetary award, Gayla will serve as a USRPA ambassador for the upcoming year. Congratulations, Gayla!
