North Carolina 4-H’ers receive more than $117,000 in scholarships


Thursday, August 22, 2013 —

Edward Gore/Shelton: This scholarship is sponsored by the Edward Gore/General Hugh Shelton 4-H Leadership Scholarship Endowment. Ed and Dinah Gore of Sunset Beach, N.C., have made these scholarships available to outstanding students who attend N.C. State University or Campbell University.

Tara M. Simmons, 18, daughter of Wallace Simmons of Goldsboro, received the Belinda Holshouser Hester “Go Green, Think Green” 4-H Scholarship. She will attend Dartmouth College to study environmental engineering. The “Go Green, Think Green” 4-H Scholarship is endowed by Belinda Holshouser Hester, a former Wake County educator and Rowan County 4-H’er.

Wilkes County

Gabrielle M. Venturini, 18, daughter of Dave and Susan Venturini of Union Grove, received the Reece and Jessie Crouse 4-H Scholarship. She will attend Wilkes Community College in general education. The Crouse Scholarship is named for Reece and Jesse Crouse, former Davidson County 4-H parents and leaders. The scholarship was established by their daughter, Carolyn Crouse Register.

Wilson County

Allyson M. Brake, 20, daughter of James and Kristina Brake of Lucama, again repeated in receiving the Ray Wilkinson Communications 4-H Scholarship. She attends Campbell University where she studies communications. The Wilkinson Scholarship is named for former WRAL-TV reporter Ray Wilkinson.

Franklin E. Scott, 19, son of Joey and Tricia Scott of Lucama, repeated in receiving two awards: the L.R. Harrill 4-H Scholarship and the Southern States Cooperative 4-H Leadership Scholarship. He attends N.C. State University, where he is majoring in agronomic business.

The L.R. Harrill Scholarship is named for North Carolina’s first state 4-H leader. The Southern States Cooperative Leadership Scholarships are renewable and are awarded to four 4-H members and four FFA members whose families are involved in agriculture or agri-business.

C. Tyler Sharp, 18, son of Alan and Debbie Sharp of Sims, received two awards: the L.R. Harrill 4-H Scholarship and the Farris Pass It On 4-H Scholarship. He will attend the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill to major in global studies.

The L.R. Harrill Scholarship is named for North Carolina’s first state 4-H leader. When Paul Farris, former president of the North Carolina 4-H Development Fund Board of Directors, completed his office, he established the “Pass it On” Scholarship to encourage 4-H’ers to continue to give to future youth like they had received awards and scholarships as 4-H’ers.
