Pennsylvania Angus Youth Undergraduate Scholarship Fund Awards First Scholarship
Kate Livingston, Dover, Pa., received the first-ever Pennsylvania Angus Youth Undergraduate Scholarship at the 2013 National Junior Angus Show’s awards ceremony on July 10 in Kansas City, Mo. The award of $500 was initiated and supported by the Pennsylvania Angus Association and Angus breeders from that state and was awarded through the Angus Foundation.
Milford Jenkins, Angus Foundation president, says fundraising efforts are underway to build this scholarship endowment toward its goal of $25,000.
“Visionary and unselfish Angus breeders in Pennsylvania wanting to help their state’s next generation pursue their dreams of attending college are funding this scholarship endowment,” says Milford Jenkins, Angus Foundation president. “Future recipients of this scholarship will forever be grateful to the Pennsylvania Angus Association and its members who unselfishly contributed to this effort and made this scholarship possible.”
Along with other Pennsylvania cattlemen, Bob Hay, manager of ErReR Hill Fams, Friedens, Pa., has helped lead the scholarship fundraising efforts.
"I think it is very important to support our youth, as they are the future of our industry,” Hay says. “I am really impressed with all the projects and contests the juniors are involved in at the national junior show. These contests teach them a lot about the industry and help train them to be future leaders of the Angus breed. Anything we can do to support them will pay dividends in the future."
