Scott County 4-H’er Travis Dierickx, Long Grove, has received a $500 Paul 4-H Scholarship sponsored by the family of Henry and Mary Martin Paul. Dierickx is the son of Pat and Lora Dierickx.

An 8-year 4-H member, Dierickx has been involved in the horticulture, market beef, breeding beef, swine and cattle feeder project areas. He has served as club president, vice president and treasurer. He plans to attend Iowa State University to major in mechanical engineering.

“Being in 4-H has given me the opportunity to meet many people, make friends throughout the United States and travel to places I’ve never been before,” said Dierickx.

In Iowa, the 4-H program is part of Iowa State University Extension and Outreach headquartered on the ISU campus in Ames. For more information about 4-H, how to get involved or how to apply for a 4-H scholarship, contact any ISU Extension county office.
