Lori Yingling will receive a $2,500 education funding grant from Mutiny Bay Blues in Freeland.

The farm owners started the grant program earlier this year. Candidates competed by submitting an essay, and Yingling’s stood out.

“Lori’s essay was deemed to be the best,” farm owner Britt Fletcher wrote in a news release.

Britt noted that Yingling is an employee at the farm, but that the program was open for anyone living within 100 miles of the farm — the company’s distribution area.

The money can be used for vocational training and college, including: tuition, books, fees, etc.

Fletcher wants to make this an annual education assistance program and plans are in the works to award two scholarships in 2016, one for the general public and one for a farm employee who have worked 200 or more hours. A soft submission deadline of Sept. 15, 2016 has been set.
