Receiving an education at the University of Illinois is preparing Tyler Scott of Big Rock, Ill., for the real world.

“My education at U of I is preparing me to take a career in agriculture head on by teaching me all of the fundamental skills that I am going to need in the real world,” he said.

Being a JBT scholar has helped Scott pay for college and challenged him to be a well-rounded student.

Scott says that he knew the U of I was the right school for him after his first visit during his junior year of high school. 

“When you visit a school, you will know if it’s right for you. It will just feel right when you visit,” he said.

Scott said attending the U of I was the biggest and best decision he has had to make. 

“It is a great place with great people and there is definitely not a shortage of fun and opportunities,” he said.
