7/7/2009

AMES, Iowa – A $1,000 scholarship has been awarded to a Woodbury County 4-H member. Megan Logan, Sioux City, has received a Goering Communication 4-H Scholarship sponsored by the Don and Doris Goering Endowment.

Logan, a nine-year member, is the daughter of Greg and Laurrie Logan. She has been involved in the communications, personal development, photography and home improvement project areas and has received a state dog project award along with the spirit of 4-H, Danforth and project awards at the local level. She has been a member of both the Northwest Iowa and the Iowa 4-H Technology Teams and has served as club president and vice president. A county council member, Logan also has served as a delegate at the National 4-H Conference and National 4-H Congress and attended the Iowa 4-H Youth Conference.

“4-H is absolutely the most beneficial and important organization I have been a part of in my youth,” she said. “Because of 4-H I expect a lot from myself, and I push myself to do my best. I have chosen a very ambitious career path in the entertainment industry, and I know the values 4-H instilled in me will help me achieve success as a filmmaker.”

A recent graduate of North High School, Sioux City, Logan plans to attend the University of Iowa and double major in cinema and marketing with a certificate of entrepreneurship in performing arts.

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.
