Brandie Rohmann, a 2013 graduate of the Weatherford High School FFA, has been awarded a $1,000 scholarship by McRee Ford and Ford Motor Company.

Rohmann plans to study Pre-Vet/Vet Sciences at Texas A&M University in College Station.

The Built Ford Tough – Ford Scholarship Program is designed to recognize FFA members’ talents and accomplishments while encouraging their future academic achievements.

Rohmann’s scholarship was one of 530 awarded by Ford Division, Ford Motor Company Fund and Ford Dealers to FFA members who are high school seniors planning to attend college in the fall of 2013, or current collegiate students. The program is a part of Ford’s overall commitment to the National FFA Foundation.

Additionally, five National $1,000 BFT – FFA Scholarships are being awarded on behalf of Ford Trucks as a special project of the FFA Foundation.

Ford has supported the National FFA Foundation since the first F-Series truck was introduced in 1948, and has sponsored the Built Ford Tough collegiate scholarship program since 1997.

To date, the program has awarded $7,645,000 in scholarships to 7,645 FFA members throughout the country.
