HANCEVILLE, ALA. –  Wallace State’s ‘2+2’ Poultry Science program recently received a $5,000 grant from the Poultry and Egg Harold E Ford Foundation and a monetary contribution given in part by Tuscaloosa-based Peco Foods, Inc.

The funds will be utilized to make Wallace State students aware of occupations within the poultry science industry and the ‘2+2’ poultry science partnership with the college and Auburn University.

The ‘2+2’ partnership with Auburn University’s Poultry Science program allows students to complete their freshman and sophomore years of college at Wallace State and then transfer to Auburn University for their junior and senior years, culminating with a bachelor’s degree in poultry science. The poultry science courses at Wallace State are administered under the Agricultural Production/Horticulture program.

Cullman County, where Wallace State is located, is among the top poultry-producing counties in the state.

Through the Wallace State Future Foundation, scholarships are available for students majoring in poultry science at Wallace State and Auburn. Scholarship applications can be completed at www.wsccfuturefoundation.org. For more information about the 2+2 program, visit http://www.wallacestate.edu/programs/technical-division/poultry-science.
