Clayton County Farm Bureau Presents Basketballs

The Clayton County Farm Bureau took the opportunity to congratulate the Ed-Co boys basketball team as they prepared to head to state tournament action during a pep rally on Friday, March 2.

The Iowa Farm Bureau became the exclusive title sponsor of the Iowa High School Athletic Association (IHSAA) in 2002.  On behalf of all Iowa Farm Bureau members across the state, Rodney Swales, Clayton County Farm Bureau board member along with Justin Leonard, agent for Farm Bureau Financial Services presented the entire Ed-Co basketball team and coaching staff with commemorative signature basketballs.  

Our students and athletes are among the nation’s best and brightest, and our farmers are among the nation’s most productive -- our partnership with the IHSAA honors both and Farm Bureau takes great pride in helping our young people excel, while also renewing pride in the community.

In addition to providing championship memorabilia and awards to student-athletes, the Iowa Farm Bureau funds scholarships and grants to outstanding young citizens engaged in academic leadership and student government.  The organization also sponsors the annual Governor’s Scholar Recognition Program which recognizes more than 400 of Iowa’s best and brightest students at a ceremony held in April in Des Moines.
