The Mac County Round Up is sponsored by the McPherson Chamber of Commerce Agriculture Committee to fund an Agriculture of America Scholarship. Since 2000, the Agriculture Committee has funded an annual $2,500 scholarship to a McPherson County high school senior who plans to pursue an agriculture-related degree. The Agriculture Committee partners with Agriculture Future of America who provides matching funds for significant scholarship awards. More than $62,000 has been invested in the continued education of 24 local agriculture students. Six additional $1,000 awards have been provided to students for Leadership Conference tuition.
