The South Dakota Farm Bureau Scholarship Fund was established in 2005 by Richard and Agnes Ekstrum of Kimball, S.D. Richard, who served as South Dakota Farm Bureau’s president from 1975-95, passed away in September at the age of 83. His legacy lives on in the creation of this endowment which has thus far awarded $28,000 in college scholarships to 28 students who are children of SDFB members.
