Houghton-Keweenaw County 4-H 2020 Senior Scholarship awarded to Houghton teen
The Houghton-Keweenaw County 4-H Program is excited to announce the presentation of the annual Houghton-Keweenaw County 4-H Senior Scholarship to Noah Bach of Houghton. We congratulate Noah for his active participation in 4-H and outstanding application that highlighted the positive impact that 4-H had on his life.
Noah has served as the president of the Copper Tips 4-H Archery Club since 2016 and is very active in his club and the 4-H community. He competed and won medals at both the regional and state 4-H shooting sports tournaments. For his leadership service, he was awarded the county-wide Jr. Teen Leader of the Year in 2016, and Sr. Teen Leader of the Year in 2017.
“Noah has embraced a key component of 4-H, which is leadership and service to others within your club and community. He has volunteered his time to help teach younger 4-H members at county-wide events such as the 4-H Spring Discovery Day and through the 4-H Archery Club. He is always eager to lend a hand to others. Noah is a strong leader and communicator. Younger members naturally look up to him as a mentor and role model. I have seen younger 4-H’ers who are hesitant to try new things blossom under his guidance as a 4-H teen leader. We are excited to see how he uses the life skills he’s gained through 4-H in the future,” says Anne Kretschmann, Houghton-Keweenaw County 4-H Program Coordinator.
This annual $500 competitive scholarship is awarded to a high school senior who has been involved in 4-H for a minimum of 3 years and lives in Houghton or Keweenaw Counties. The scholarship applies towards educational plans beyond high school such as college, university, military, trade school, or apprenticing.
