AMES, Iowa -- A $1,000 scholarship has been awarded to a Cedar County 4-H member. Alana McNutt, Iowa City, has received a Lloyd, Inc. 4-H Scholarship sponsored by Lloyd, Inc.
McNutt, a 10-year 4-H member, is the daughter of Susan Brigham and Jim McNutt. She has participated most actively in the project areas of breeding beef, market beef and horse. On the county level, she has received the Earl Rolf memorial beef award, the Cedar County beef award and was her county fair queen. She served as vice-president and reporter of her 4-H club. She was also a member in her county 4-H council.
“My first 4-H project began me down a journey of real life lessons beginning with records, budgeting and making decisions on my own,” McNutt said. “It was through this project that I discovered just how at home I was among livestock producers and cattle alike.”
McNutt is a senior at Iowa State University and is majoring in animal science and international agriculture. She is also actively involved in Alpha Gamma Delta sorority, Alpha Zeta professional agriculture honor society and is the international agriculture club’s president.
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.
