Members of 4-H Alberta’s west central region will have access to a new $1,000 scholarship.
The Marilyn Sharp 4-H Scholarship will be offered for the first time this fall to 4-H members entering post-secondary studies.
The scholarship is made possible through donations from MEGlobal and Dow Canada. The scholarship is named in recognition of Marilyn Sharp’s long time volunteer contributions as a member of the community advisory panel for the Prentiss site east of Blackfalds.
“Marilyn has been one of the most dedicated members of the Prentiss site community advisory panel for more than 25 years,” said Trish Thompson, MEGlobal public affairs manager.
“Her insightful questions and suggestions on behalf of site neighbours and the region has made a big impact on how our companies operate and communicate with our stakeholders.”
Offered as part of 4-H Alberta’s Provincial scholarship program, the scholarship will be offered until 2025. It will be awarded based on academic achievement, overall 4-H achievement and public speaking participation.
