4-H Scholarship Recipients

The Red Lake County 4-H Leader’s Council presented $250 scholarships to these members.  They are Shelby Gunderson and Sarah Quick.  This scholarship program is open to graduating Red Lake County High School Seniors who have been active 4-H Members for at least three years. The scholarship application selection is based on the 4-H Members involvement in both the 4-H Youth Development Program and their community service.

The 2017 4-H Scholarship Award recipient Shelby Gunderson, daughter of Jamey and Suzan Gunderson of Trail, Mn.  Shelby is a member of the Garnes Go Getters 4-H Club.  She has been active in the 4-H Youth Development Program for nine years.  Some of her activities and participation in 4-H include: 4-H Share the Fun, County and State Fair, 4-H Ambassador Program, 4-H Demonstrations, President of Garnes Go Getters 4-H Club to two years and other various officer roles.     Shelby says, “4-H has taught me to work hard and it will pay off.  Also, it has brought me to know people in my community that I may not have otherwise known.  4-H has brought me outside of my comfort zone and brought me to do so many amazing things and activities through the year.  I can take my hard work and all the other qualities I have learned from 4-H to college with me.”

The 2017 4-H Scholarship Award recipient, Sarah Quick, daughter of Roy and Elizabeth Quick of Plummer, Mn.  Sarah is an independent member and former member of the Happy Go Lucky    4-H Club.  She has been active in the 4-H Youth Development Program for nine years.  Some of his activities and participation in 4-H include: 4-H County Ambassador Program, held various officer duties in the club, 4-H Share the Fun Program, 4-H Make It and Take It Project Night, County and State Fair, YELLO (Youth Exploring Leadership & Learning Outloud!), volunteering through her club at the Humane Society and the Nursing Home.
Sarah says, “Through 4-H, I expanded my knowledge of leadership, horses, and working as a team.  I learned leadership at YELLO, but also through performing arts and leadership roles in my club, I gained confidence.  4-H gave me the opportunity to learn more about and become more involved with working with and competing with horses.  Through my 4-H Club and 4-H Share the Fun Performances, I learned how to collaborate with others to create a plan to reach a goal.  I have grown within 4-H and attribute much of my success to 4-H.”
