The Colonial Agricultural Educational Foundation Inc. has selected the recipients of its 2014 scholarship program. Scholarships totaling $150,000 will be awarded to two organizations and 82 students residing in Central and Eastern Virginia and Southern Maryland.

Among the scholarship winners is Katarina Elaine Mehalko, a Suffolk resident attending Tidewater Community College. Mehalko was awarded a scholarship through the Phate and Annie Hodges Memorial Endowment by Samuel and Novella Barnes.

The Foundation was established by Colonial Farm Credit in 1990 to promote education and community enrichment through educational scholarships and support of programs and services offered by community organizations. Scholarships are awarded to individuals who exhibit an aptitude for learning and a desire for self-improvement through education. To date, the foundation has awarded more than $1 million dollars in scholarships.
