Worthington's Luke Gordon earns Minnesota Corn award

Minnesota Corn has announced its college scholarship recipients for the 2024-25 school year. Four young-adult members of the Minnesota Corn Growers Association will each receive $5,000 scholarships to further their education.

 

Among this year’s scholarship winners is Luke Gordon of Worthington. Gordon is a second-year student at South Dakota State University studying agriculture systems technology and minoring in agriculture business, precision agriculture, and unmanned aviation systems.


During college, Gordon has worked as a precision ag support center specialist, a data capture specialist, and an operator and technology specialist for his family farm. He’s also been an SDSU College of Agriculture, Food and Environmental Sciences ambassador, a member of the SDSU marching band, and involved in multiple agriculture clubs. Gordon eventually hopes to grow his drone spraying business while working as a precision ag support specialist for his local John Deere dealership and maintaining a role on his family farm.


Minnesota Corn is comprised of two distinct organizations — the Minnesota Corn Growers Association and the Minnesota Corn Research & Promotion Council — each with the goal of increasing opportunities for growers while improving quality of life. MCGA advocates on behalf of family corn farmers in St. Paul and Washington, D.C., while supporting county corn growers associations.
