AMES, Iowa -- A $1,000 scholarship has been awarded to an Adair County 4-H member. Alyse Herr, Fontanelle, has received an Iowa State Fair 4-H Scholarship sponsored by the Iowa Foundation for Agricultural Advancement.
Herr, a nine-year 4-H member, is the daughter of Paul and Virginia Herr. She has participated most actively in the project areas of beef, food and nutrition, and personal development. She has participated in 4-H communication and 4-H celebrity judging events at the Iowa State Fair. Herr earned special recognition honors for a state fair food and nutrition exhibit and is a state 4-H project award winner in the beef and food and nutrition projects. Herr served as president, vice-president and secretary of her 4-H club. She was also a member of her county 4-H council, area council, and county youth committee and participated in the Citizenship-Washington Focus program and the Iowa 4-H Youth Conference.
“4-H has helped me to explore many career options through Iowa State 4-H Conference,” Herr said. “I not only got to meet a lot of new people and have a lot of fun, but I also was able to explore the many things Iowa State University has to offer.”
Herr is a graduate of Nodaway Valley High School and plans to major in agricultural and biosystems engineering at Iowa State University.
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.
