Approximately 31 years ago a gentleman by the name of Oliver Hagg willed to Saline County 1,100 acres of farm ground.

In his will, Mr. Hagg stated that it was his wish that the land is used for conservation and education.​ There have been numerous projects done on the farm over the years, but one of the most important of these was in 2001 when Saline County established the Oliver Hagg Memorial Scholarship Fund. Each year a renewable $1,000 Scholarship is awarded to a Saline County High School Senior.​

The criteria for this scholarship are community involvement, strong school work ethics, and the applicant’s desire to continue his/her post-secondary education in the field of agriculture.​ Since the first scholarships were awarded in In the fall of 2002, forty-seven Saline County students received the Hagg Scholarship.​
