The Clay County 4-H Foundation awarded scholarships to two Clay County 4-H students. The scholarships were made possible by many past and present supporters of our 4-H program.

The scholarships were based on 4-H accomplishments, scholarship, leadership and community service. While all of the applicants were very competitive, the two students chosen excel in all areas. Sydney Rudolphi, a 10 year member of the Pixley Pride 4-H Club, and Brady Clark, a 10 year member of the Panther Creek Pioneers 4-H Club, are this year’s winners. Sydney Rudolphi, senior at Newton Community High School, is the daughter of Brad & Cathy Rudolphi of Noble. Brady Clark, senior at North Clay High School, is the son of Brad & Mandy Clark.

The Clay County 4-H Foundation was established to provide scholarships and educational opportunities to the youth in Clay County. The college scholarships are an annual event. If you wish to donate to the 4-H Foundation, please contact the Extension office at 618-662-3124.
