Simformotion awards Caleb C. Amundson with 2013-2014 Cat Simulators Scholarship
Simformotion LLC has selected Caleb C. Amundson for the 2013-2014 Cat Simulators Scholarship.
The scholarship gives Amundson $2,000 toward the pursuit of a heavy equipment-related career.
Amundson graduated from Fairbury Jr. Sr. High School in Nebraska in 2013. He plans to attend North Central Kansas Technical College in Kansas and enroll in the Heavy Equipment Operation program.
Amundson was a member of his high school’s FFA chapter and qualified for state competition in welding. He said he plans to return to Nebraska after college and use his heavy equipment knowledge to promote agriculture in his home state.
“I have been influenced greatly by agriculture and plan to go into heavy equipment operations because I will get the chance to build terraces and construct feed lots and also build irrigation and waste ponds,” Amundson said.
