Massachusetts Farm Bureau Federation (MFBF) is pleased to announce that Heather Hunt of Orange, MA is this year’s winner of the Gregory Finn Scholarship. The annual award is given to a Farm Bureau member or immediate family member who is majoring in communications, journalism, music or an agriculturally-related field. The scholarship was established as a tribute to Gregory Finn, former Public Relations Director for MFBF. It is awarded in Greg’s memory to foster understanding and help close the gap between the farm community and suburban Massachusetts.
Heather was born and raised on Hunt Farm, the family farm which raises Holstein cows. As a youngster, she was very active in 4-H, exhibiting dairy cattle and participating in dairy bowl competitions. She is currently attending Cornell University in Ithaca, New York, where she is majoring in Animal Science, with a minor in Business Management. Heather hopes to one day manage a large dairy operation. “By becoming a progressive innovator, I hope to manage the farm for maximum output of product without compromising health and safety.” Congratulations, Heather!
