The Napa County Farm Bureau Foundation is pleased to announce its 2023 scholarship recipients for graduating high school seniors in Napa County who are pursuing college study of agriculture.
This year’s awardees are all outstanding, inspiring kids with an interest in agriculture. The scholarship fund was established by the family of Aldo Delfino, the late Napa County Ag Commissioner who valued both the opportunity to attend college and to return to Napa County and assist the community and local agriculture.
Following Aldo’s death in 1981, the Aldo Delfino Scholarship was founded to provide scholarships in his name to local kids wanting to attend college and study agriculture. The Napa County Farm Bureau’s Young Farmers and Ranchers also contributed to this year’s scholarship fund.
The scholarship winners for the high school class of 2022 are: (Left-Right)

“We’re extremely proud of this year’s scholarship recipients and what they have academically accomplished,” said Ryan Klobas, CEO of the Napa County Farm Bureau. “Not only does the Farm Bureau represent the current generation of agricultural professionals in Napa County, but we also ensure the next successful generation of ag professionals and these scholarships are a major way we accomplish that goal. This year’s scholarship recipients represent an inspirational group of students with bright futures and we’re looking forward to great things from them.”
