Cory Watt Memorial Scholarship

In his leadership role as the Chairman of the National Junior Angus Association (NJAA) Board of Directors, Jonathan “Cory” Watt was widely known and loved by thousands of NJAA members and Angus breeders across the country.

Cory returned home to be with the Lord on February 19, 2015, after a prolonged battle with cancer. Cory graduated from Clemson University in December 2014, where he received a degree in animal and veterinary science, and focused on agriculture business. He loved Angus cattle and was an active member of the South Carolina Junior Angus Association. Through this scholarship, Cory’s legacy will continue to strive by helping one recipient each year achieve a higher education. Led by the Kevin and Lydia Yon family with the donation of an Angus female, other family, friends and industry role models have grown the Cory Watt Memorial Scholarship Endowment Fund to more than $40,000 in Cory’s memory.
