WHO IS NORMAN VESTAL?
Norman Vestal was a tireless supporter of young men and women from our community who demonstrated an interest in Agriculture. He worked as a County Agent for the Texas Agriculture Extension office for over 30 years and was awarded County Agent Emeritus by the Texas A&M Board of Regents upon his retirement.
To honor Mr. Vestal’s commitment to Rotary and his support of future agriculture leaders, this scholarship was started in 2002.
The Rotary Club of San Antonio will grant five (5) $500 scholarships to area graduating seniors from Bexar County who plan to pursue a career in agriculture (to include agribusiness).
In order to be considered for this scholarship, each student must submit an essay (limited to 1000 words) including a self-description, 4-H and/or FFA activity, other extracurricular activities, employment, financial need, career goals in agriculture, and other experiences involving agriculture. Each application must include an official transcript through the most recent reporting period (please include class size, standing, and scores of standardized tests) and three letters of recommendation from anyone familiar with the applicant’s agriculture interest or experiences.
