Spaans Family Scholarship

The Spaans Family has been in the baking business for over 120 years. Since 1958, the bakery has been located in Old Town Galt. The Spaans family values the community of Galt for all of the support throughout the years. Part of the corporate responsibility of our company is to give back, when able, to the community that has given so much to us.

The Spaans Family Scholarship was established to provide financial assistance to FFA students from Galt High School and Liberty Ranch High school who are pursuing higher education. We value the educational opportunities and core values that our local FFA programs provide to the youth of our community. It is our hope that we can recognize some exceptional students that have contributed, through their efforts, to the continued success of the program. These Scholarships are intended to help educate our youth as they pursue their future goals.
