AMES – Macy Evans of Union County was awarded the Tobin 4-H Scholarship renewal through the Iowa 4-H Foundation at the recognition ceremony June 2 in Ames.
The Iowa 4-H Foundation has announced the recipients of more than 100 Iowa 4-H scholarships valued at over $115,000. Recipients accepted their awards June 2 at the foundation’s scholarship recognition ceremony held in the Scheman Building at Iowa State University (ISU). More than 400 applications were submitted and scholarships have been awarded to recipients from 50 counties across the state of Iowa with a wide variety of 4-H experiences.
Evans is majoring in agriculture education at ISU. She was active in 4-H, where she held many leadership positions. She was on State 4-H Council and was a part of numerous countywide leadership activities such as heading a livestock showmanship clinic. Evans would like to become an agriculture educator.
“Through my work on the farm, I know that I have a passion for helping and educating others,” said Evans. “I want to be a teacher that inspires students to fulfill their dreams, to encourage them to step outside that comfort zone and try new things.”
“Iowa 4-H Foundation scholarships acknowledge the hard work and dedication of young people who have used their 4-H skills and experiences to ‘make the best better’ for others,” said Emily Saveraid, executive director of the Iowa 4-H Foundation. “We also are thankful for the many scholarship donors who fund these important opportunities for Iowa 4-H’ers.”
