MILLSBORO – August 8, 2019 -- Mountaire Farms, the nation’s sixth largest chicken producer, recently awarded 28 students with $2,500 scholarships to help them pay for college.

Children and grandchildren of employees, growers, and grain suppliers are all eligible for the scholarships, which were announced at luncheons in Delaware and North Carolina recently.

“We are proud of this program because it embraces everything that we care about – our employees, our growers, our grain producers and their families,” said Phillip Plylar, President of Mountaire Farms. “And these students have all demonstrated a commitment to their education, and to their communities, which we believe should be celebrated.”
