Fremont County 4-H Member Receives Iowa State Fair 4-H Scholarship

7/30/2009

AMES, Iowa – A $1,000 scholarship has been awarded to a Fremont County 4-H member. Emily Aistrope, Randolph, has received an Iowa State Fair 4-H Scholarship sponsored by the Iowa Foundation for Agriculture Advancement.

Aistrope, a nine-year member, is the daughter of Doug and Kerry Aistrope. She has been involved in the beef and child development project areas and has been recognized for clothing selection, fashion revue, swine showmanship and static projects at the state level. A county 4-H council member, Aistrope also has attended the Iowa 4-H Youth Conference.

“Not only has 4-H been lots of fun, it has provided me with the opportunity to meet many people from across the state by attending state conference and the Iowa State Fair. Those experiences influenced my decision to attend Iowa State University,” she said. “They have driven me to become the best I can be and to encourage others to be involved with 4-H as well.”

A recent graduate of Fremont-Mills High School, Aistrope plans to attend ISU and major in kinesiology and exercise science.

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.
