To continue the wonderful work which was accomplished by the Midland/Midland, Alabama Agriculture Scholarship Fund which is no longer viable. After the flood of 1986, farmers in Midland City, Alabama collected monies which were sent to Midland, Michigan as an expression of appreciation for the hay which had been sent to them by the citizens of Midland, Michigan during their drought of 1986. These monies were used to provide an annual, nonrenewable grant to a graduate of a Midland County high school for the purpose of post high school study in an accredited college, trade or technical school in agriculture education. When these monies had been fully utilized, the Stevens Family, recognizing the value of this scholarship, decided to provide funding for it themselves and, in a 2008 amendment, later expanded the scholarship to include both Midland and Gladwin County students.
