Submitted by Communications and Marketing

Ronnie Sullivan, sophomore in agribusiness from Paola, and Adam Wilkerson, senior in civil engineering from Columbia, Mo., are among the 56 undergraduate college students who are members of the first class of Cargill Global Scholars.

Cargill and its executives have signed up to mentor and support select undergraduate students around the world as part of the Cargill Global Scholars program.

The new scholarship program selected college students from Brazil, China, Russia, India and the United States to receive funds to help cover their educational expenses and to participate in leadership development and enrichment activities with Cargill leaders. These activities will enhance critical thinking skills and equip students with tools to help them become leaders and decision makers in their chosen fields.
