AMES, Iowa -- A $1,000 scholarship has been awarded to a Louisa County 4-H member. Kate Dion, Ames, has received a Lloyd, Inc. 4-H Scholarship sponsored by Lloyd, Inc.

 

Dion, a 10-year 4-H member, is the daughter of John and Donna Dion. She has participated most actively in the project areas of food and nutrition, swine and rabbits. On the state level, she has received the World Food Prize Iowa 4-H Centennial award. She also served as president and secretary of her 4-H club.

 

“4-H allowed me the opportunity to explore my interests which helped me determine that a career in large animal medicine is what I want to do,” Dion said.
