7/3/2007

AMES, Iowa -- A $1,000 scholarship has been awarded to an Adams County 4-H member. Trever Shipley, Nodaway, has received an Iowa State Fair 4-H Scholarship sponsored by the Iowa Foundation for Agricultural Advancement.

 

Shipley, a nine-year 4-H member, is the son of Bill and Diane Shipley. He has participated most actively in the project areas of swine, wildlife and personal development. On the county level, he has received awards for livestock leadership, agricultural and the KCSI Leadership award. He served as president of his 4-H club. He was also a member of his county 4-H council.

 

“I have been interested in the field of swine genetics and animal science since I was little when my dad was raising livestock,” Shipley said. “I have showed pigs in 4-H for nice years and loved every minute of it.”

 

Shipley is a graduate of Villisca High School and plans to major in animal science 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.
