7/2/2007

AMES, Iowa -- A $1,000 scholarship has been awarded to a Clay County 4-H member. David Langner, Ayrshire, has received an Iowa State Fair 4-H Scholarship sponsored by the Iowa Foundation for Agricultural Advancement.

 

Langner, a nine-year 4-H member, is the son of Chris and Marcia Langner. He has participated most actively in the project areas of citizenship, swine and horticulture. On the county level, he has received awards for leadership, achievement and the Ak-Sar-Ben award. He served as president, vice-president and secretary of his 4-H club. He was also a member in his county 4-H council and county youth committee. He also attended the Iowa 4-H Youth Conference and the Citizenship Washington Focus program.

 

“As a person, 4-H has helped instill in me a work ethic and taught me that if you work hard enough at something you can do anything,” Langner said.

 

Langner is a graduate of Ruthven-Ayrshire Community High School and plans to major in agriculture 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.
