Harford Agricultural Society Scholarship Program


Ten $1,000 Scholarships Awarded at Annual Banquet

The Harford Agricultural Society recently presented ten $1,000 scholarships at its annual fair banquet held at Dreyer Hall in Montrose.  Because several of the recipients were away at college, parents or siblings accepted the scholarship awards on their behalf.
