To win the scholarship, Shine completed a two-page application, wrote a 250-word essay on how Coastal Farm and Ranch can best serve Auburn, according to Coastal Farm & Ranch owner Buzz Wheeler, who organized the scholarship committee.
"Patrick's essay was thoughtful, well written and full of good ideas," Wheeler said.
