Muscatine County 4-H Member Receives Stakey 4-H Scholarship


AMES, Iowa -- A $1,000 scholarship has been awarded to a Muscatine County 4-H member. Amanda Lensch, Durant, has received the Stakey 4-H Scholarship sponsored by donors to the Iowa 4-H Foundation 4-H Scholarship Program.


Lensch, a nine-year 4-H member, is the daughter of Becky and Lee Lensch. She has participated most actively in the project areas of citizenship, horticulture and home improvement. On the county level, she has received an award for junior spirit. She served as president, vice-president and secretary of her 4-H club. She was also a member in her county 4-H council and was a representative at the Iowa 4-H Youth Conference.


“4-H has been a wonderful experience for me,” Lensch said. “It’s difficult to even describe everything I have learned, from the many skills that will be of use to me in the future to all the terrific friends I have made.”


Lensch is a graduate of Durant High School and is planning to major in apparel merchandising, design and production 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.
