Niemeyer to receive scholarship from College of Agriculture, Food, and Natural Resources Alumni Association

Reed Niemeyer, son of Earl and Shari Niemeyer, of rural Bowling Green, has been selected to receive a $2,000 scholarship from the CAFNR Alumni Association.

Niemeyer is a native of Bowling Green and a graduate of Bowling Green High School. Niemeyer is entering his sophomore year at Mizzou as a Hospitality Management major.

When asked why he chose to attend the College of Agriculture, Food, and Natural Resources, Niemeyer said, “I chose CAFNR to be my academic home because of all of the different opportunities the school provides and because of the high quality instructors there.”

The CAFNR Alumni Association provided $50,000 in scholarship money to thirty CAFNR

upper-class students for the 2018-2019 academic year. The association also funded over

$25,000 in teaching and educational enhancements for the College’s students, faculty and staff in the last year.
