2021 scholarship recipient Cauy House is a recent Mena High School graduate with plans to attend Ouachita Baptist University to study agribusiness.

In high school, Cauy was a member of National Society of High School Scholars, National Honors Society, FFA and played for the Mena High School football team. He will also play football for OBU this fall.

Cauy grew up on his family’s cow-calf operation in Polk county and says that in addition to pursing a career in agriculture business, he wants to continue to invest time into raising quality beef.

“Rural life has played a huge role in helping me decide on what I want to be in the future,” Cauy said. “I thank my dad every day for raising me up on our farm and teaching me how to be a cattleman. Without him doing that, I would have no clue on what I would want to be.”
