Three Forks Native Recipient of CattleWomen’s Scholarship

The 2015 Montana Cattlewomen’s Memorial Scholarship has been awarded to Lilly Brogger, a senior at Montana State University, Bozeman. Lilly is majoring in English Writing with a minor in Agricultural Business. She has already aligned herself on her career path by writing agriculture-related articles for the school newspaper, The MSU Exponent. Lilly’s plan is to become a Professional Agricultural Journalist.

Lilly is the daughter of Marc and Lola Brogger of Three Forks, Montana. Coming from a ranch background herself, Lilly knows she can be a bridge between the producer and consumer. “No community can function without good communication,” states Lilly, “and part of good communication is working with the opposition”.

With all of the misconceptions in today’s world of “where our food comes from” and the extremely high percentage of people who are uneducated or misinformed as to our role as farmers and ranchers, the challenge to clearly communicate is enormous. Lilly recognizes the importance and the need for writers with an ag background, who can more easily and effectively share the agricultural community’s story.

The Montana Cattlewomen’s Scholarship is in the amount of $1,000 and is funded through memorials. This scholarship was established in 1963, which makes this the 53rd consecutive year it has been awarded to a worthy student.

As a voice for the producer, Lilly Brogger will surely be an asset to the agriculture and livestock industry.  Congratulations Lilly – The Montana Cattlewomen are proud to invest in you!
