Scholarships

Jordan Voves is a scholarship recipient for our Families Feeding Families Scholarship in 2019. He is currently attending college at Hawkeye Community College while working towards obtaining his Iowa Electrical License. Jordan has been able to work full-time with us while attending college.
While his time here, Jordan said that he has most enjoyed the the hands on learning experiences. “I love the challenges that are thrown my way,” said Jordan. “Being able to track down what the problem is and come up with a solution is fun to me. I also am able to learn about the other areas of operations at Reicks View Farms that has allowed me to grow outside of my electrical skills.”
Jordan works closely with a few other electricians. They work together to continue to keep our pig facilities working efficiently. It’s crucial our facilities continue to run so our pigs can stay comfortable and healthy.
