AGC of SD Scholarships

Sydney Ferrie

Tuition has always been a major concern for me.

Your gift of a scholarship is incredibly encouraging to me, as it allows me to focus more on my studies and less on my financial worries. I will continue working and learning as much as I can for the benefit of the public. Thank you!

I Can Focus on Being My Best

The scholarship will help me with books and tuition at South Dakota State University. Without this scholarship, I would not be able to focus on academics and athletics as well to be the best I can be.
