5/10/2005

AMES, Iowa -- A $500 scholarship has been awarded to a Cherokee County 4-H member. Brian Tuttle, Granville, received a Pioneer Community College 4-H Scholarship sponsored by Pioneer Hi-Bred International, Inc.

 

Tuttle, a 10-year 4-H member, is the son of Paul and Laurie Tuttle. He has served as president and reporter of his 4-H club. Tuttle has participated most actively in the beef, poultry, photography and woodworking project areas. He served on his county 4-H council and attended the Iowa 4-H Youth Conference. Tuttle has received the Danforth "I Dare You" leadership award, an Angus Auxiliary award and herdsman awards for poultry and beef.

 

"Through 4-H I have developed a love for caring for livestock. I have spent many hours working with my show cattle," Tuttle said. "This has taught me patience and perseverance. I have decided that I want to work with cattle and care for them in the future."

 

Tuttle is a senior at Marcus-Meriden-Cleghorn High School. He plans to attend Iowa Lakes Community College to study agricultural production with a beef emphasis.
