By From page A4 | January 22, 2014

DIXON — The Friends of the Dixon May Fair will award $12,500 in college scholarships to seven Solano County students enrolled in a California college and majoring in agriculture or an agricultural-related field.

The deadline to apply for the scholarships is 5 p.m. March 1.

Over the past 11 years, they’ve awarded more than $100,000 in college scholarships to Solano County students pursuing agricultural-related careers.

The top student in the four-year college category will receive the $3,000 Ester Armstrong Memorial Scholarship, memorializing the former Dixon May Fair chief executive officer. Three other scholarships, at $2,000 each, will be given in the four-year college category.

For two-year college students, the awards are the Jack Hopkins Memorial Scholarship of $1,500 and two scholarships at $1,000 each.

The Friends of the Fair, an all-volunteer group headed by Donnie Huffman of Vacaville, is the fundraising arm of the Dixon May Fair and raises money through the sale of beverages.

More details can be found at www.friendsofthefair.org/scholarship.php. Recipients will be notified by mail after April 15 and will be announced at the Dixon May Fair.
