The Kansas 4-H Foundation has selected 64 students to share more than $59,000 in scholarships, rewarding them for their dedication and leadership as Kansas 4-H members. Recipients include Brenna Ewing and Tessa Davids of Spring Hill.
The scholarships fund post-secondary education during the 2015-16 academic year and will be awarded at the 2015 Emerald Circle Banquet, May 28, in Manhattan.
“Assisting our 4-H members in pursuit of higher education, where they will apply the skills and knowledge gained through 4-H, is a privilege and honor for our donors. We couldn’t be more pleased to award scholarships to these deserving young men and women,” said Jake Worchester, president of the foundation.
Scholarship recipients are 4-H members selected through an annual application and review process. Applications are judged with emphasis on 4-H leadership, citizenship and involvement. Many of the scholarship donors are former 4-H members.
