GREAT FALLS, Mont. – Two Montana Farmers Union (MFU) junior youth received the Mildred Stoltz Scholarship Award at the organization’s 97th annual meeting and convention last month.
The 2012 Mildred Stoltz award recipients are:
Aiden Copenhaver of Fairfield, son of Amanda and Cory Copenhaver; and Katalina Adams of Fort Benton, daughter of Tamara Adams. The recipients receive a plaque, $50 and a free camp registration for the next camp season.
Mildred Stoltz was MFU’s education director for more than 18 years. In her honor, the Farmers Union Oil Company of Great Falls – now Mountain View Co-op – set up a fund to recognize youth for their leadership skills and cooperative spirit. Each year youth are selected from Arrowpeak Junior Camp, which is located in the Highwood Mountains.
