Cattlemen present annual scholarships

At the Wilkes County Cattlemen’s last meeting of the summer, the family of the late George R. Smith continued its legacy of supporting local youth in agriculture as Robert Smith (top photo, right) presented Lindsey Moore with a $500 scholarship from the family. Moore is enrolled at Abraham Baldwin Agricultural College with a dual major in ag-education and diversified ag-livestock production. She is the daughter of Shane and Amy Moore.
