Six college-bound Illinois
4-H members were recognized as 4-H Legacy of Leadership Scholars during the
annual 4-H Family Event on Aug. 10 at the Illinois State Fair. The winners
each received a $1,000 college scholarship.
Among those selected was Cameron
Jodlowski, a 10-year member of the Atlanta Town & Country 4-H in
Logan County. He will attend Iowa State University. The scholarship
sponsor was Farm Credit Services of Illinois, represented at the 4-H
Family Event by Rod Stoll.
Since its inception in 2003, 61 4-H members have been named a Legacy
of Leadership Scholar. The scholarship is merit-based and available
to 4-H members who are high school seniors or in their last year of
4-H membership. The statewide scholarship program is coordinated by
the Illinois 4-H Foundation and the University of Illinois Extension
state 4-H office.
The Illinois 4-H Foundation
welcomes individuals, corporations and organizations as partners in
providing additional funds for further scholarship recipients. The
executive director of the foundation is Angie Barnard.
