Presley Reid, Loco, Oklahoma was selected to receive the Jefferson County’s E.C. Joachim Scholarship award. This scholarship is made available by the family of E.C. Joachim a true Extension supporter in Love, Jefferson and Cotton Counties. The family chose to continue his love and support for 4-H particularly in these counties where he served in Extension for many years, by providing scholarships to graduating Seniors who have been active in their county 4-H. Tara Brown, Jefferson County OSU Extension Educator, FCS/4-H Youth Development presents Presley with the award.
Presley stated “My whole life has been spent farming and ranching with family and friends. I love to play sports. I have always been active in softball, basketball and rodeo. As I have grown into my high school years, my teammates and I have been very successful on the field and the court. We own horses that we use on the farm, ranch and rodeo…. I have to give credit to our 4H program for all this success. Whether I really knew it or not, 4H has always been a huge part of my life and has made a big impact on me…. 4H has helped me gain knowledge and leadership skills that I will need in the future… I personally believe every kid needs to be involved in 4H, not just the show kids.”
