Wisconsin FFA alumni start scholarship honoring their instructor
Past students of a Wisconsin FFA program are creating a scholarship to honor their longtime agricultural educator.
The Spencer FFA Alumni is launching the scholarship to honor Mark Zimmerman, who lost his battle with cancer on June 29th. Zimmerman served the Spencer district as the ag educator and FFA advisor since 1992.
A raffle will kick off the fundraising during the chapters Fall Harvest Breakfast on September 11th, and donations are being accepted at Partners Bank in Stratford, Spencer, and Marshfield.
Zimmerman’s widow Cheryl is the Wisconsin FFA Executive Director and is also the National FFA secretary.
