$500 Scholarship Awarded to Colby Pantaleoni
Because our top contenders for this years’ scholarship were both so deserving, we decided to award a second scholarship for $500. The recipient of this scholarship went to Colby Pantaleoni of Gridley. Colby is a 2017 graduate of Gridley High School, graduating with a 4.10 grade point average. He plans to attend California Polytechnic State University, San Luis Obispo this fall, majoring in Bioresource and Agricultural Engineering, with a minor in Agribusiness.
