As each year passes, more and more people realize that impact that William “Bill” Silveira had on the California Pork Producers Association (CPPA). A visionary, Bill poured his heart and soul into making CPPA Work for pork producers.

This legacy still lives today.

After Bill’s passing his loving wife Sofia started a scholarship fund for junior CPPA members in his memory. Bill believed in young people and knew providing them opportunities would pay dividends well into the future. The Silveira Scholarship Fund was established to help cultivate future CPPA and agriculture industry leaders. With the support of a number of CPPA members, the fund continues to grow.

In 2012, 2013, and 2014, the Silveira family has helped CPPA present hard working and dedicated pork producers who are pursuing a college education with financial assistance. The scholarship is awarded to the most qualified recipient and awarded at CPPA’s Pork Spectacular.
