The AJMS Committee is accepting applications for the $500.00 scholarship. All interested seniors are encouraged to apply.

MaryAnn Wegener Memorial 4-H Scholarship, DUE April 1. In 2001, members of the 4-H community, family, and friends contributed money towards a 4-H scholarship program in memory of MaryAnn. MaryAnn was very active as an adult volunteer in 4-H in roles ranging from club to County All-Star Advisor. She loved watching 4-H members grow and mature, and would have appreciated this scholarship program to assist 4-H'ers pursue their life dreams. There is one new scholarship each year, which can be renewed if normal progress is being made towards graduation, and funds are available. The intent is to give priority to those 4-H'ers that need financial assistance in order to meet their vocational, two, or four year college goals.
