AMES, Iowa-- A $500 scholarship has been awarded to a Calhoun County 4-H member. Nicole Meyer, Lytton, has received a Pioneer Community College 4-H Scholarship sponsored by Pioneer Hi-Bred International, Inc.

 

Meyer, a nine-year member, is the daughter of Alan and Carol Meyer. She is active in sheep, swine, home improvement and food and nutrition project areas. Meyer has served on county 4-H council and as vice-president, secretary and historian of her 4-H club. She has attended the Iowa 4-H Conference, has won the state project award for sheep, and was named top senior member for Calhoun County. In school, Meyer is active in FFA and volleyball.

 

"4-H helped me to decide that I wanted to stay in agriculture and I love being around agriculture," Meyer said. "I love everything about the farm; the animals, crops and life in general."

 

Meyer is currently a senior at Rockwell City-Lytton High School and plans to attend Hawkeye Community College to study agricultural business.
