LAKE COUNTY, Calif. – Two Kelseyville High School FFA members were awarded scholarships at the Junior Livestock Awards event held Sunday, Sept. 1, at the Lake County Fair.

It was the 20th year the Alexander Memorial Scholarship has been awarded.

The $500 winner, Evan Holdenreid, has been both a 4-H and FFA member in the Kelseyville and Big Valley programs.

A 2019 graduate of KHS, Holdenreid has been highly involved in his community and the family ranch.

His teachers describe him as a “stellar student, athlete, and FFA member.”

Holdenreid currently is enrolled in college in the Chico area and was unable to attend the award ceremony.

First runner up, Steven Spague, who was awarded $300, is also a 2019 graduate of Kelseyville High and an active FFA member and past president.

His goal is to pursue a degree in biology or ag business at California State University, Chico.

Both young men expressed appreciation for the agricultural lifestyle and growing up in a rural close knit community. They hope to find a place in the agricultural industry in their future.
