Scholarship State: North Carolina
Targeting Excellence formed a North Carolina committee in 2013 making it the 1st state to join the organization. The first North Carolina fundraiser was held in 2013 and students scholarships have been awarded in the state since that time.
The 2017 scholarship awards included a total of $184,000 to students pursuing degrees in food animal production. North Carolina specifically awarded $35,000 to students either from North Carolina or attending schools in North Carolina. A special thanks to all who attended the Targeting Excellence events in 2016 as well as the 2016 sponsors for making it possible to award these scholarships.
