WHEATLAND (IOWA) Elizabeth Tulley, a senior at Calamus-Wheatland High School from Calamus, has been named this year’s local F&B $500 scholarship winner.

Tulley plans to attend the University of Northern Iowa to major in English and further pursue a degree in library science. In her application essay, she wrote about her hometown and how the people of Calamus have nurtured her and taught her the importance of community involvement and being kind to others.

High school seniors who live in households in the F&B local telephone service area were eligible for the award. Students submitted an application form and essay. Three finalists were selected for in-person interviews.

A primary goal of the scholarship is to ensure that children have the privilege of attending college and encourage young people to return to rural areas after graduation.

The local F&B scholarship program was started in 2003 because the Board of Directors and employees of F&B are committed to the education of local youth and believe learning is a lifelong process.

Elizabeth’s parents are Brian and Deb Tulley.
