NAMI establishes Gustafson scholarship

NAMI establishes Gustafson scholarship

The North American Meat Institute has announced the establishment of The Ron Gustafson Scholarship. The $5,000 award honors Gustafson, president and chairman of Coast Packing Co., for his service to both the industry and NAMI and provides funds to eligible sophomores, juniors and seniors attending accredited four-year colleges or universities who are enrolled in an approved animal, meat or food science degree or culinary arts program.

NAMI reviewed about 70 applicants for the 2018-2019 academic year. For the 2017-2018 school year, 11 of the top performing undergraduates pursuing degrees in animal, meat and food science, or in a culinary arts program received a combined total of $55,000.
