Yolo County Farm Bureau is pleased to announce that Ralph Samuel Gonzales has been awarded the Yolo County Farm Bureau Young Farmers & Ranchers scholarship for 2018-2019.

Ralph was a member of the Winters High School FFA Chapter for three years. Ralph received many honors and awards throughout high school – one of which being his FFA Chapter Degree!

Ralph’s involvement in the FFA has been instrumental in his decision to pursue a career in engineering. Ralph did not know that participating in the FFA would be why he chose engineering as his career path but it has contributed many of the skills that will complement the engineering field. He has learned to fabricate, weld and drive a tractor. He participated in laying the foundation of a greenhouse for the FFA program as well as welding and fabricating a fire pit for the program.

Ralph will be attending the University of Georgia in the fall to study Engineering.

Congratulations, Ralph!

Payton was a member of the Winters High School FFA Chapter for four years earning many awards/honors and most recently serving as the Yolo Section President.

It was not only 4-H and FFA that assisted Payton in making her career choice, her lineage helped as well. After college, Payton would like to begin her career within an agri-financing or a crop marketing firm. She hopes to return to her rural hometown to continue her career and be influential in a community that provided so much for her through the years.

Payton will be attending Cal Poly San Luis Obispo in the fall, majoring in Agriculture Communications.

Congratulations, Payton!
