AMES, Iowa -- A $500 scholarship has been awarded to a Jones County 4-H member. Alyssa Meyer, Stanwood, has received a Pioneer Community College 4-H Scholarship sponsored by Pioneer Hi-Bred International, Inc.
Meyer, a nine-year 4-H member, is the daughter of Cindy and Kent Meyer. She has participated most actively in the project areas of dairy cattle, horse and dog. On the county level, she has received awards for showmanship, county exhibitor and was a Jones County teen council member. She served as president, vice-president and historian of her 4-H club. She was also a member in her county 4-H council.
“4-H taught me many life experiences and has made me a well-rounded person in many walks of life,” Meyer said. “Truthfully without 4-H, I would not have had the awareness of all the different community and service needs that are out there.”
Meyer is a graduate of North Cedar High School and plans to major in equine science at Kirkwood Community College.
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.
