Congratulations to Sylvia Slingerland on receiving the 2020 Alberta Holstein Scholarship!
Sylvia is part of the Diamond Park Dairy team and is in her 2nd year of the Agriculture Biotechnology program at the University of Lethbridge. Although we were unable to present her with her award at the AGM, board member and Youth Committee Chairperson, Randy Slomp was able to stop in and congratulate Sylvia on her achievement.
“Looking into the future, upon completing my degree in Agriculture Biotechnology, I want to apply to Vet school. It has always been a dream of mine to be able to provide excellent care to large animals that are sick or in need. It pulls at my heart, when I look at a sick animal on our farm or any farm that I am visiting, and not be able to help it.”
We look forward to the 2021 applications coming in this fall and are hopeful we will be able to award up to FOUR scholarships this year!
