Lindsay Bulk, a Seward County Community College/Area Technical School student in Liberal, Kansas, has received the 2013 Dr. Andrew V. Stevenson Merit Scholarship in the amount of $1,000 for her commitment to academic excellence and active involvement in her community.
Currently majoring in agriculture business, Bulk of Riley, Kansas, plans to transfer to a bachelor’s degree program in agriculture business with a minor in accounting at Kansas State University next year. Her ultimate goal is to pursue a career in the banking/financing side of the agricultural industry.
The Dr. Andrew V. Stevenson Merit Scholarship is awarded each year to a student who is a member of Kappa Beta Delta International Honor Society, carries a grade point average of 3.0 or higher, is currently enrolled in college courses, and has performed merited community service in the past year.)
“Growing up I was always pretty good at math,” she said, “but it wasn’t until I competed at the Kansas Future Farmers of America State Agribusiness Competition that I knew exactly what I wanted to do with my life! I could combine my math skills with my passion for agriculture!
Bulk learned the importance of the community service as a child when, among other activities, she helped clean up local highways and delivered Christmas goodie bags to the elderly and shut-ins. Currently, she is president of her campus Kappa Beta Delta chapter, a member of Phi Theta Kappa and her campus Livestock Judging Team, and an active volunteer with the 4-H youth development organization. Through her affiliation with these organizations, Bulk has organized and participated in numerous volunteer events to give back to her community and teach local youth about agriculture.
“She (Bulk) is an exceptional student, active in many campus activities and respected by her peers. Lindsay is dedicated to being successful in and out of the classroom,” says Tanya Dowell, Accounting Program Coordinator and Kappa Beta Delta Chapter Advisor at SCCC/ATS.
