Reginald Luke Lanier has been selected to receive the Staple Cotton Scholarship awarded by the University of Georgia College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences for the 2006-2007 academic year.
A 2003 graduate of David Emanuel Academy, Lanier is currently a senior majoring in agricultural economics. He is involved in Alpha Gamma Rho fraternity serving as vice president of membership development and vice president of activities. He is also member of the Interfraternity Council and served a CAES senator in SGA. Lanier’s cotton interest spawns from an internship with Monsanto as a field claims specialist.
After graduation Lanier plans to obtain his master’s degree in agricultural economics or crop science and pursue a career with the United States Department of Agriculture or a chemical company. He is the son of Sidney and Bonnie Lanier of Swainsboro.
The annual Staple Cotton Scholarship is awarded to students in the College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences who have a background, interest or experience in the cotton industry. The Staple Cotton Cooperative Association recognizes students that have demonstrated successful academic performance and leadership skills.
