Montgomery County 4-H Member Receives Tobin Scholarship
AMES, Iowa – A $500 scholarship has been awarded to a Montgomery County 4-H member. Krista Frazee, Emerson, has received the Tobin 4-H Scholarship sponsored by the Tobin family in honor of J. Kelly and Irene Tobin.
Frazee, an 11-year 4-H member, is the daughter of Will and Deb Frazee. She has been involved in citizenship, leadership and beef. She was president, vice president and secretary of her 4-H club and served on the county 4-H council, county youth committee and area 4-H council. She also attended Citizenship-Washington Focus and the Iowa 4-H Youth Conference.
“4-H has influenced my life in countless ways,” Frazee said. “If I had not been involved in 4-H, I would not have had the chance to expand my leadership and citizenship skills that have helped me excel today, as well as forming life-long friendships along the way.”
Frazee is a junior at Iowa State University majoring in public service and administration in agriculture. She is involved with the Ag Student Council, Collegiate 4-H, PSA Club, ISU Red Cross Club, and is the secretary of the Life Sciences Student Council.
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.
