In addition, every Texas Farm Credit branch recognizes one outstanding student per month from January to April of the school year. Winners receive $100 Visa gift cards and advance to the selection process for the Marsha Martin Scholarship program.

    For the month of February, the Texas Farm Credit Clarksville branch is pleased to announce their AgStudent of the Month, Kayla Ratcliff who was presented with a certificate and gift card by Branch Manager Jay Kidwell.
