Our new intern for the summer is Mikaela Davis from Graceville, Florida. Mikaela is a senior Global Business major at Troy University and is interning with us to learn about the business side of agriculture and to gain experience in the field. Mikaela is getting married in November to her fiancé, Ashby, and is graduating from Troy in December. Mikaela is looking forward to a great summer here at FPPA, getting married and graduating, as well as moving back to Graceville after graduation to begin her career in agriculture business (and helping out on the family farm, of course).

Marianna, FL- The Florida Peanut Producers Association is pleased to announce the

Two $1,200 scholarships will be awarded to deserving high school seniors and/or college students. The applicant or someone in the applicant’s family must be an actively producing

Each winner will receive $600 when the scholarship winners are announced. The
remaining $600 will be awarded after the completion of one semester and
documentation of passing grades is submitted to the FPPA Office.
“The Florida Peanut Producers Association is committed to helping further the
education of young people in Florida and the scholarship program is evidence of our
commitment,” said Ken Barton, Executive Director of the FPPA.
“The FPPA welcomes all applicants. The final selection will be made by the committee
and all applicants will be notified by mail, as will the scholarship winners,” said Barton.
