FFA Scholarship Program
As a local business in the agriculture industry, we are very proud of the hard work of the youth in our community who participate in the 4-H and FFA programs each year. A great deal of time, education, effort, and work go into projects throughout the year and we like to be supportive of these initiatives that contribute to the personal development and education of our youth. Each year, Middletown Tractor Sales gets many requests for participation in auctions and events related to various 4-H clubs and FFA chapters in North Central West Virginia and Southwestern Pennsylvania.
In 2014, Middletown Tractor Sales decided to primarily support these groups in the form of FFA scholarships. The MTS scholarship program is sponsored and funded by Middletown Tractor Sales, but administered by the National FFA Foundation. Our scholarship program is different from most in that it is a community fund. MTS raises funds for the Scholarship program by allowing customers, employees, and community members to contribute to the fund when making purchases at Middletown Tractor Sales. Whether a dollar, or ten dollars, all donations are tax exempt and put directly into the scholarship program. Customers may either make an outright donation, or tack an extra dollar or two onto your purchase. The program is available in equipment sales, parts, and service, so you have every opportunity to get involved!

“Middletown Tractor is a small business. Although we have recently expanded to two new dealerships in Pennsylvania, we want to keep our culture the same – business by family, for family. That is why we have chosen to open our scholarship program up to community support. This program will allow us to invite our customers to become an even bigger part of our Middletown family.” Adam Boyers, Vice President and General Manager
