Deadline for Paul Alexander Memorial Scholarship approaches

LAKE COUNTY, Calif. – The submission deadline is nearing for the applications of The Paul Alexander Memorial Scholarship.  

For the 15th time, a $500 award and plaque will be presented to a Lake Country high school senior or recent graduate who has been actively involved in FFA and/or 4-H.

The application deadline is April 30.  

The requirements, application form and other information are available in the 2014 Lake County Fair premium book, online at http://celake.ucanr.edu/files/133214.pdf or the 4-H/Cooperative Extension Office, 883 Lakeport Blvd, Lakeport.

Local high school counselors also have forms available. Completed application packets are due on or before April 30 to the same address.

The scholarship is named after Paul R. Alexander and his wife Otha who together served over 75 years as 4-H volunteers.  

Paul Alexander was involved in the very first Lake County Junior Livestock auction in 1951 and never missed the event until the year of his death in 1998.  

He served as junior livestock superintendent for many years and one of the fairground buildings was named in his honor.  

Individuals or groups interested in contributing to this scholarship fund to ensure its perpetuity would be greatly appreciated.  

Contributions can be sent to the 4-H/Cooperative Extension office in Lakeport or to Peggy Alexander, 1050 Eva Way, Lakeport, CA 95453.
