The Kerusso organization has decided to grant two scholarships to Oklahoma children who showed promise in pursuing their vocational studies, according to the Lovely County Citizen.
Kolton Johnson and Eric Holman were the two recipients of the scholarships, as both of these individuals had shown a significant level of talent in the agricultural field.
Johnson, who recently graduated from Eureka Springs High School, was given $500 through the Larry Wicker Vocational Scholarship. He excelled in vocational studies and plans on attending the Tulsa Welding School to try and learn a new trade that can be applied for potential future employment, according to the news source.
"I'm a good, hard worker and want a good future - a big future," Johnson said. "I want to go somewhere. The scholarship will definitely help with my school expenses."
Johnson had spent the early part of his life riding around on a John Deere tractor, and he hopes to use his education to begin a career that would have him work for the agricultural giant, reported the Citizen.
Kerusso is a clothing company that also sponsors children who show promise in the education field, according to the company website.
