5/26/2006

AMES, Iowa -- A $1,000 scholarship has been awarded to a Worth County 4-H member. Michael Schaub, Grafton, has received an Iowa State Fair 4-H Scholarship sponsored by the Iowa Foundation for Agriculture Advancement.

 

Schaub, a nine-year member, is the son of Curt Schaub and Pat Clark. He is active in swine, communication, beef and leadership project areas. Schaub has been on county, area and state 4-H councils and on the county youth committee. He also has been a delegate to the National 4-H Congress and an Iowa Youth Pork Ambassador. Schaub has won beef and swine showmanship awards at the junior, intermediate and senior levels and the horse and sheep showmanship award at the senior level. Schaub also has served as president, vice-president and treasurer of his 4-H club. In school, he is active in various sports, FFA and student government.

 

"I have always been greatly influenced by agriculture and the opportunities that arise from it," Schaub said. "4-H helps me and many other youth to become more responsible, well-rounded individuals."

 

Schaub is currently a senior at St. Ansgar High School and plans to attend Iowa State University to major in agricultural education.
