OABA Members Bowl to Support Agricultural Students

Ninety Ohio AgriBusiness Association members came together for the 2017 Bowling for Scholarships event in Maumee, Ohio. The event is held annually to raise money for the OABA Educational Trust scholarship program, through which more than $35,000 in scholarship dollars is provided annually to students enrolled in an agriculture-related field attending The Ohio State University and Ohio State’s Agricultural Technical Institute, Clark State Community College and Wilmington College.

In addition to being charitable, many of the bowlers were focused on the competition! The results from this year’s bowling event are as follows.
