The 2004-2005 Jim Buchanan Memorial Scholarship

Buchanan and Company is proud to announce the 2004-2005 recipients of the Jim Buchanan Memorial Scholarship. The scholarship was established upon Jim's death in 1993 by his family, friends and business associates. It is funded by income from a permanent endowment in the Kansas State University Foundation. That endowment has now grown to well over $100,000. Including this year's recipients, 40 scholarships have been granted, totaling $52,650. Criteria include, but are not limited to, enrollment in Agriculture at Kansas State University, graduation from a small Kansas high school, participation in 4-H, FFA and athletics, and demonstrated leadership potential. This plaque is displayed at KSU in Waters Hall, room 137.
