Robert "Rusty" Gilles Youth Agricultural Scholarship

"Grants provide scholarships or grants encouraging participation in agricultural-related opportunities."

Rusty Gilles envisioned a place where people could make wonderful memories. Inspired, he founded a 400-acre agricultural recreation facility in Cadott. 

There, he and his wife Judy, guided thousands of people on horse-drawn rides amid Wisconsin's natural beauty. For 23 years they provided unforgettable experiences.

So that experiences like these may continue, the Robert "Rusty" Gilles Youth Agricultural Fund was established in memory of Rusty by Judy Gilles and their son, Mark. 

Scholarships will be granted to people ages 17 to 25 in the Cadott school district area who attend or participate in agricultural-related courses, conferences, seminars, or training opportunities.
