This new scholarship has been established by the Hoffman Family in memory of Vern E. Hurt. Mr. Hurt was born in Trenton and graduated from Trenton High School. Following high school, he attended Trenton Junior College (now known as North Central Missouri College) and the University of Missouri. As a young boy, Mr. Hurt was active in sports and enjoyed hunting and fishing. He married the former Linda Hoffman, daughter of H. Frank and Mary Louise Hoffman, and they had two sons, Adam and Anthony, and one daughter, Allison.

The family lived in a variety of locations from California to Montana and New England before settling in Omaha. Mr. Hurt served two years in the United States Coast Guard before starting his 40-year career with the National Park Service. He was a Park Service Ranger and later a Safety Manager, serving in Badlands National Park, Lassen Volcanic National Park, Point Reyes National Seashore, Yellowstone National Park and Cape Cod National Park. He retired from the National Park Service in 2006.

This new Agriculture Scholarship will be awarded annually to a sophomore student pursuing a degree related to the Agriculture and Natural Resources career pathway. This scholarship will provide $350 per semester for the recipient each year.

“Scholarships are a great way to remember and honor those individuals who’ve made a positive impact on your life. This new scholarship award will benefit deserving agricultural students and will help them achieve their higher education goals,” commented Teresa J. Cross, Director of the NCMC Foundation. Please contact Teresa Cross at 660-359-3948 x1403 or by e-mail at tcross@mail.ncmissouri.edu to find out more about the Gifts in Action Scholarship Campaign.
