AMES, Iowa -- A $500 scholarship has been awarded to a Tama County 4-H member. Katie Fevold, Gladbrook, has received a Pioneer Community College 4-H Scholarship sponsored by Pioneer Hi-Bred International, Inc.

 

Fevold, an 11-year 4-H member, is the daughter of Becky and Steve Fevold. She has participated most actively in the project areas of horse, beef and food and nutrition. On the county level, she has received awards for horse and bread. She served as president, reporter and historian of her 4-H club. She was also a member in her county 4-H council and attended the Iowa 4-H Youth Conference.

 

“Being involved in 4-H has let me have many experiences that helped in making me who I am today,” Fevold said. “As I’ve had many projects in 4-H, they’ve given me a perspective of what I want to do in the future.”

 

Fevold is a graduate of Gladbrook-Reinbeck High School and plans to major in animal science at Iowa Central Community College.

 

In Iowa, the 4-H program is a part of Iowa State University Extension and headquartered on the ISU campus in Ames. For more information about 4-H, how to get involved, or how to apply for a 4-H scholarship contact the local county office of ISU Extension.
