MONTEREY, CA - Ocean Mist Farms is continuing to further its stance on contributing to the future through furthering education for the next generation, having presented its academic scholarship last weekend at the 57th Annual Castroville Artichoke Food & Wine Festival in Monterey, CA.

Ocean Mist Farms’ Academic Scholarship Program set forward a plan to award a total of four $1000 academic scholarships to deserving local high school graduates with a 3.0 GPA or higher.

“Our mission with the Ocean Mist Farms Academic Scholarship Program is to recognize local high school graduates who demonstrate the guiding values of integrity, quality, passion, and success in their daily decisions and in their pursuit of a higher education,” the company’s Director of Marketing and Academic Scholarship Committee Chairperson, Diana McClean, tells me. “It is our honor to be a part of their future success.”

The four scholarships were in acknowledgement of a student’s excelling in any one of the four categories:

  • Integrity
  • Passion
  • Success
  • Quality

As a previous sponsor of the artichoke-centric festival, it was fitting that the company’s contribution to helping grow the next generation be presented at the annual event.

According to its website, Ocean Mist Farms will be looking for its next round of recipients in the fall of 2017. AndNowUKnow will continue to follow this and other moves in the industry to help strengthen the future of our industry and its consumers.
