Kristen Davis, of New Sharon, recently was named one of four students nationwide to be awarded a 2017 Horizon Organic Producer Education scholarship for $2,500 to further her education in organic agriculture.

The scholarship is awarded to deserving students who are children or grandchildren of Horizon Organic’s nearly 700 family farmers.

Davis grew up on Silver Valley Farm and is a two-time HOPE Scholarship recipient. Her father, James Davis, and her uncle, Richard Davis, own and operate Silver Valley Farm and have shipped to Horizon for 10 years. She will start her sophomore year this fall at Husson University in Bangor where she plans to study mass media with a focus on marketing communications.
