Three Students Receive 2019 Adkins Energy Scholarships

LENA, IL, June 7, 2019 — Adkins Energy LLC is proud to continue its tradition of helping promising area students pay for higher education. Three outstanding students received Adkins Energy scholarships this year. Entries were judged on academic achievement and an essay: What is E15 and why is it important to farmers and consumers?

Alyssa Vincent, the daughter of Todd and Tanya Vincent and a graduate of Stockton High School received $500 to help cover the costs as she pursues a degree in diagnostic medical sonography. Her essay highlighted the benefits of E15 as a cleaner burning fuel, and how its use contributes to the lower cost of gasoline in the United States.

Aaron Wubbena, a Forrestville Valley graduate, is the son of Jeff and Carol Wubbena. He received $500 to help cover the costs of pursuing a degree in agricultural accounting. He pointed out that as a renewable resource, E15 helps farmers due to the demand for corn and is also a less expensive fuel choice for consumers.

Cecelia Zink, a Stockton graduate, is the daughter of Dean Zink and Diane Eden-Zink. She received $500 to help pay for the cost of pursuing a degree in graphic design. She recognized the various benefits of E15 availability year round, both as a less expensive option for consumers as well as providing farmers with a stable income.

Adkins Energy congratulates Alyssa, Aaron and Cecelia and all area graduates, and wishes them good luck in their next endeavors, whether it is school or work (or a combination of both).
