7/2/2007

AMES, Iowa -- A $1,000 scholarship has been awarded to a Kossuth County 4-H member. Nathan Legler, Renwick, has received an Iowa State Fair 4-H Scholarship sponsored by the Iowa Foundation for Agricultural Advancement.

 

Legler, a nine-year 4-H member, is the son of Charles and Barb Legler. He has participated most actively in the project areas of sheep, science mechanics and engineering and landscaping. On the county level, he received awards for citizenship, merit and agriculture. He served as president, vice-president and historian of his 4-H club. He was also a member of his county 4-H council and area 4-H council and was a representative at the Iowa 4-H Youth Conference.

 

“Without 4-H I would never have had the opportunity to become a better leader in my club, community, county and state,” Lawler said.

 

Legler is a graduate of Corwith- Wesley- Luverne High School and plans to major in agriculture business 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.
