Marion County Cattlewomen Scholarship

Mark Shuffitt Memorial Scholarships

  • The Mark Shuffitt Memorial Scholarship fund was established in 2018 to remember and honor Mark Shuffitt and his committment to the Southeastern Youth Fair. Due to the increasing economic need of students within Marion County who wish to continue their involvement in the SEYF, there is not a limit on the number of scholarships (between $300 and $500) which will be awarded each year.  However, students must be nominated by their FFA advisor or 4-H leader. Please see the link below to the NEW Criteria for Nominations.  
    • The Mark Shuffitt Spirit Award will be presented to individuals which have participated in the current SEYF market animal project. A check will be awarded to be used for the purchase of the animal, feed, pen, or other needed supplies.
    • The Continuing Education Scholarship awardees will receive financial assistance to attend an event/conference which would otherwise be too costly.

      The Criteria for both Scholarships is the same.
