Dundas 4-H Association Scholarship Award

This is a cash award of $400 presented to a member attending Post Secondary Studies. This award can only be won once. An application was submitted to the Association.

Congratulations to our 2015 winner: Holly Somerville

Holly is currently attending her third year at Carleton University in a Child Studies program. For many years, 4-H has kept her busy in both agriculture and lifeskill clubs. Her year has been busy with showing a beef and dairy calf, holding club executive positions and teaming up with other members to form the county senior judging team. Being a dedicated 4-H member is important to her where she learns to be the best she can be and finds it is a rewarding experience when she can pass this knowledge on to her fellow members. Holly feels what she has learned and experienced in 4-H will definitely help her be a successful individual in her career. Best of Luck, Holly.
