Congratulations to Alexis Cook – the 2015 recipient of our $1,000 college scholarship. Alexis graduated first in class from Esparto HS and was Valedictorian. During her high school career she participated in many school sports and clubs including FFA for 4 years.  She spent many after school hours at Lopez Ranch and Horse Hilton as a stable hand and horse trainer.

Alexis will be attending Northeastern University in the fall and will be pursuing a degree in Architecture. She is preparing for a career in agriculture specializing in biological, technological and scientific designs. In her application she noted, “My future career goals can help slow down urban sprawl and help the production of agriculture commodities. In a time of many technological advances and urbanization, it is important to go with the times but not lose a vital industry due to these advances. I want to keep the moral of the agricultural commodity viable, but also fight hard to protect the agriculture sector”.

We are very proud of Alexis’ accomplishments. We wish her the best of luck with her college career and future endeavors!
