It’s been almost two years now since he’s been gone. S.M. True Jr., the former president of Texas Farm Bureau, makes everyone’s short list of all-time great Texas agricultural leaders. A major scholarship, sponsored by the Farm Bureau, will now honor his memory.
Since his death in a farming accident on May 18, 2012 at age 88, the Farm Bureau has sought a fitting way to honor him. The S.M. True, Jr. Agricultural Scholar Award is a unique scholarship for a very special, unique leader. This $20,000 scholarship will be presented annually to a college junior, majoring in agriculture and enrolled in a four-year college or university. It is available only to the children of Texas Farm Bureau member families who have been part of the organization for three years or more.
