PBCI give local students scholarships

Lucas Quates of Luverne and Emily Anne Morgan of Dozier were each awarded a scholarship by the Poarch Band of Creek Indians (PBCI) for their participation in Alabama’s livestock industry Saturday, March 19 at a luncheon held in coordination with the Southeastern Livestock Exposition (SLE) Rodeo.

“The PBCI has a proud history of supporting youth in livestock. Each year, young people from each of Alabama’s 67 counties are awarded a scholarship from the Tribe to aid in future participation in youth livestock events or further education during SLE Livestock Week,” Kayla Greer, director of communications for the Alabama Cattlemen’s Association, said.
