The Goggans Tree Farm in Lincoln County holds an annual summer fundraiser and this year the proceeds were dedicated to students in the Arkansas-Monticello College of Forestry, Agriculture, & Natural Resources.
The farm, some 500 acres, was originally settled in 1856 and is owned by Miles Goggans and his sister, Johnna Goggans Novak.
Johnna’s son, Jack Thomas, presented the scholarships to the students, who are:
Jovanny Martinez, Star City
Timothy Chapman, Monticello
Patrick Phillips, Jackson, Miss.
The scholarships were for a total of $3,000 and through the Hailey and Jack Thomas Family Foundation.
Jack Thomas is a graduate of Central Arkansas Christian and was a standout quarterback for the Mustangs and then went on to play baseball at Harding, while Johnna was a long-time contributing photographer to the Maumelle Monitor and The Times of North Little Rock.
