2012 Scholarship Recipients
Congratulations to our 2012 Scholarship recipients Kayla Mercier and Melissa McKinnon. They were the first two recipients to ever receive scholarship from the Kewaunee County 4-H Horse Project.

Melissa McKinnon is currently a second semester sophomore at the University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point pursuing her Bachelors of Art for Secondary Education with emphasis in Broad field Social Sciences and a minor in History.  She has been a member of Kewaunee County 4-H for five years, was very active in supporting the Horse Project in a variety of roles including serving as President and leader of the project’s Drill Team which performs at fair every year.  During her time in 4-H Melissa received awards in Sportsmanship and as an Outstanding Teen Leader.  This year she has become an adult leader and will stay actively involved in 4-H in the coming years.

Kayla Mercier is currently attending UW River Falls majoring in animal science. She has been in 4-H since kindergarten. Over the past years she shown many different animals at the fair, including hogs, rabbits, beef, and horse, along with many craft projects and cake decorating.  She was active in her local club as president, Teen Board, and Horse Project. She showed at the county fair, state, nationals and congress through the horse project. The highlight of her horse project involvement was being able to represent the Kewaunee County 4-H Horse Project and Wisconsin at nationals (Louisville, Kentucky) and Quarter Horse Congress (Columbus, Ohio) during team demonstration speaking competition. She also enjoyed helping the younger youth at the various horse clinics. Kayla is now in her second semester at River Falls and is enjoying learning more about animal science.
