Weeks from the fifth anniversary of Brian Knull’s passing, the Knull family and Duane Briand of CANTERRA SEEDS met with Katherine Harink to present her a $1,500 cheque as the 2021 winner of the Brian Knull Memorial Scholarship.

Katherine “Kate” Harink is a second-year student at Olds College, majoring in Agri-commerce in the Agriculture Management program. She chose this program because it could branch out to various different careers in the agriculture industry.

Kate grew up in the Falun, AB area, taking part in the Lakedell 4-H Lighthorse Club for 10 years and the Falun East Beef 4-H Club for eight years. She credits one experience in 4-H that got her interested in the Agriculture industry.

“I won a trip in Senior Selections to the Northwest Territories. On this trip, we got to explore various different agriculture ventures, including free-range pigs and potatoes,” said Kate.

Along with the hands-on experience that she’s learning in her classes, she will be applying for the Applied Bachelor of Science in Agribusiness at Olds College and hopes to use all the skills and knowledge she’s learned over the years to contribute to the agriculture industry in Alberta and Canada.

Both CANTERRA SEEDS and the Knull family congratulate Kate on the scholarship win, being the strongest contender out of the 20 applications received. Her application showed that she was serious in her studies and committed to Canadian agriculture.

Brian Knull’s legacy continues in the Alberta ag community with the Brian Knull Memorial Scholarship. CANTERRA SEEDS enjoys the time of year where we get to encourage a youth to pursue a career in agriculture – a place Brian is still greatly missed.

The 5th year of the Brian Knull Memorial Scholarship will kick off in September 2022.
