Indiana student wins ASA/BASF soy scholarship

By Andi Anderson

Addie Gauck, a high school senior from Greensburg, Indiana, has been awarded the prestigious 2024-25 Soy Scholarship by the American Soybean Association (ASA) and BASF. The $7,000 scholarship is open to children and grandchildren of ASA members, aiming to support her academic and leadership development.

ASA President Josh Gackle expressed pride in partnering with BASF to support promising students like Addie. He emphasized that investing in future industry leaders is crucial for the success and growth of agriculture.

Addie Gauck plans to study agriculture systems management at Purdue University. Her extensive involvement in agriculture includes numerous awards and leadership roles in 4-H and FFA. At age 11, she started her own business, Addie's Fresh Pork and Pasture Raised Chicken, which has significantly boosted her confidence and taught her the importance of working with others.

Addie credits her father for teaching her the importance of maintaining business and agriculture connections, which she believes is crucial for her future career. Owning her business has taught her responsibility and accountability, and she aims to use these skills to enhance the agriculture industry and her community.

Scott Kay, vice president of U.S. Agricultural Solutions at BASF, emphasized the importance of supporting the next generation of farmers dedicated to addressing future agricultural challenges. He expressed pride in supporting this scholarship and investing in future industry leaders.

The American Soybean Association represents U.S. soybean farmers on domestic and international policy issues. ASA has 26 affiliated state associations representing 30 soybean-producing states and more than 500,000 soybean farmers.
