SALINAS, CA - Taylor Farms knows that the heart of any great organization is its people, and the company has taken great steps to invest in the future of its personnel. The company recently hosted its employees and their families at its annual Scholarship Luncheon, where Taylor Farms presented 20 new students with college scholarships. The recipients are all children of active, full-time Taylor Farms employees, and are pursuing higher education at a four-year university or graduate program. This year, the company awarded $100,000 in scholarships, and has given away over one million dollars to more than 100 worthy recipients.
“Taylor Farms is thrilled to continue the scholarship program for our team and their families with both new students and renewed scholarships,” said Bruce Taylor, CEO. “We are deeply passionate about creating opportunity for education as the foundation of a thriving future.”
The scholarships are designed to support the students throughout their entire academic career, according to a press release. Students will receive an upfront check for $5,000 with a guaranteed renewal of $5,000 for each year that they remain in their undergraduate or graduate program.
