OVERLAND PARK, Kan. — Ferrellgas announced Mayson Brook Foster, a 2018 graduate of Starmount High School, as one of 14 winners of the 2018 Ferrellgas Scholarships. She will be awarded $4,000 for the 2018-2019 academic year.
At Starmount High School, Foster was a member of National Honor Society, Beta Club and Samaritans Kitchen. Foster was also a member of the Starmount High School Show Choir and the Yadkin Arts Council.
Ferrellgas has been awarding scholarships annually since 1992. The program is designed to provide financial assistance to children of Ferrellgas employees who are furthering their education at degree-granting, post-secondary educational institutions. Each year the scholarship committee carefully reviews each student’s application, and after much deliberation, determines winners on the basis of academic excellence and financial need.
Ferrellgas Area Product Coordinator Karissa Johnson believes the scholarship program is a worthwhile investment into the children of the company’s employees.
“Ferrellgas is committed to serving the community and extends that commitment to the children of our employees through the Ferrellgas Scholarship Program,” Johnson said. “I’m thrilled that we’re able to reward Mayson for the hard work she’s put in throughout her time in high school.”
Foster, the daughter of Larry Hamby, a transport A driver for Ferrellgas, looks forward to attending North Carolina State University this fall to study biology.
