Lincoln County High School senior Trace Bowman has been selected as one of the Ag Athlete Scholarship winners for 2022. He will be presented with his scholarship at the KHSAA Boys Sweet Sixteen Tournament this March at Rupp Arena.
This scholarship is for student-athletes who are involved in agriculture and athletics and is awarded to six students per year. To qualify, student-athletes must be involved in agriculture, a graduating senior, and must be accepted to a college, university or trade school following graduation.
“Athletics and agriculture have a lot in common. They both teach the value of effort, discipline, and teamwork,” Agriculture Commissioner Dr. Ryan Quarles said. “We are pleased to join our partners at the KHSAA for the fourth year to reward the Commonwealth’s best young athletes and agriculturists. We hope these scholarships help cover the ever-rising cost of higher education for those striving for excellence in athletics and agriculture.”
Two student-athletes – one male and one female – will be named Outstanding Kentucky Ag Athletes of the Year and will be awarded $2,000 scholarships. Four student-athletes – two males and two females – will be awarded $1,000 scholarships as Kentucky Ag Athletes of the Year.
Bowman was a standout on the football team his senior season and is currently playing baseball for Lincoln County High School. He has signed to play college football at Centre College upon graduation this May.
