Former Morgan Academy Student Earns AFAF Scholarship

A former Morgan Academy two-sport athlete recently earned a scholarship from the Alabama Farmers Agriculture Foundation and the Dallas County Farmers Federation.

Will Ingram received a $1,750 scholarship from the Alabama Farmers Agriculture Foundation and the Dallas County Farmers Federation.

Ingram, who played football and soccer at Morgan Academy, is a freshman at Auburn University. He’s majoring in agricultural economics. Ingram left Morgan Academy with a 4.1 GPA and 30 ACT score.

Alabama Farmers Federation President Jimmy Parnell, who serves as president of AFAF’s board of directors, said Ingram was among 54 students who received the Alabama Farmers Agriculture Foundation (AFAF) Scholarship.

“We’re proud of these students. They’re hard workers who represent the future of agriculture and farming,” Parnell said. “It’s a pleasure to be able to invest in their education through this scholarship program. We’re confident these young adults will go on to achieve great things in our industry.”

At Morgan Academy, Ingram made The Selma Times-Journal All Dallas team between 2018 and 2019 and played in the AISA All-Star football game. He received a $5,000 scholarship from the Selma QB Club last November.
