MARYSVILLE — Matthew Hiser of Jamestown received one of five $1,000 academic scholarships awarded by The Ohio Cattlemen’s Association Best of the Buckeye program.


The scholarships are given to participants pursuing an agriculture-related post-secondary degree. Recipients were awarded their scholarships at the Ohio State Fair, prior to the selection of the Overall Grand Champion Market Beef Aug. 2.


Scholarships were awarded based on academics and extracurricular activities and applicants submitted an essay along with their scholarship application answering, “How will you stay involved with the cattle industry through college and in the future, and how will programs like Best of the Buckeye help you achieve this?”


In the fall Hiser will attend The Ohio State University to obtain a degree in animal science and a minor in agricultural business and applied economics. He is currently serving his first term as an Ohio Cattlemen’s BEST Junior Representative and also the Ohio FFA Association’s District 9 president. Upon graduation he plans to enter into a career in the livestock industry with an emphasis in animal nutrition.


The Best of the Buckeye program is hosted by the Ohio Cattlemen’s Association in conjunction with the Ohio Beef Expo and the Ohio State Fair, and recognizes top-placing Ohio bred, born and registered calves, along with the breeder and exhibitor, in each breed division at the two shows.


Hiser is son of John and Pam Hiser.
