AMES, Iowa -- A $2,000 scholarship has been awarded to a Linn County student. Tatyana Reinboldt, Lisbon, received a Hills Bank 4-H Scholarship sponsored by Hills Bank and Trust Company.
The Hills Bank 4-H Scholarship is awarded to as many as 20 students each year.

Afterward, they receive $500 per semester for two years. The scholarship may be used at any of Iowa's accredited universities, colleges or community colleges.
"I was given new techniques which will help me in future leadership opportunities," Reinboldt, the daughter of Alvin and Melany Reinboldt, said.
Reinboldt has been involved in several activities including “Win With Wellness,” National Honor Society and student council. She also was a member of band, choir, speech and drama clubs. She also was named to the Daughters of American Revolution Good Citizen National Honor Roll and received the Kirkwood presidential scholarship.
