AMES, Iowa -- A $1,500 scholarship has been awarded to an Adair County 4-H member. Beth Baudler, Fontanelle, has received the Juergens 4-H Scholarship sponsored by the Juergens family in honor of Dale and Ruth Juergens.

 

Baudler, a seven-year 4-H member, is the daughter of Clifton and Sondra Baudler. She has participated most actively in the project areas of agriculture and natural resources, beef and food and nutrition. On the county level, she has received awards for leadership, educational presentations and the Ak-Sar-Ben award. She served as president, secretary and treasurer of her 4-H club. She was also a member in her county 4-H council, area 4-H council, Iowa 4-H Youth Council and national 4-H congress and attended the Iowa 4-H Youth Conference.

 

“4-H has taught me many life skills and developed me into the person I am today,” Baudler said. “Through 4-H, I now see the opportunities are endless and I can do whatever I set my mind to.”

 

Baudler is a graduate of Nodaway Valley High School and is planning to major in animal science at Iowa State University.
