Ames, Iowa – Ellie Foelske was awarded the Marie A. and George E. Busch Scholarship through the Iowa 4-H Foundation at the recognition ceremony Sunday, June 3 in Ames.

Ellie, the daughter of Michael and LeAnn Foelske, is a 2017 graduate of Denver High School.

The Iowa 4-H Foundation has announced the recipients of over 70 Iowa 4-H scholarships valued at over $100,000. Recipients accepted their awards on Sunday, June 3 at the Foundation’s scholarship recognition ceremony held in the Scheman Building at Iowa State University. Over 500 applications were submitted and scholarships have been awarded to recipients from 48 counties across the state of Iowa with a wide variety of 4-H experiences.

Foelske will return to Iowa State University this fall, majoring in agriculture communications. She is involved in the Ames community, collegiate 4-H and other on-campus organizations. In the future, Foelske would like to move back to Bremer County to work full time.

“I love working alongside multiple organizations within the local area and have genuinely enjoyed traveling across the state of Iowa teaching young 4-H’ers about how they can make a difference in this ever changing world,” she said.

“Iowa 4-H Foundation scholarships acknowledge the hard work and dedication of young people who have used their 4-H skills and experiences to ‘make the best better’ for others,” said Emily Saveraid, Executive Director of the Iowa 4-H Foundation. “We also are thankful for the many scholarship donors who fund these important opportunities for Iowa 4-H’ers.”

The family of Marie A. and George H. Busch provides this scholarship to an applicant who will be a sophomore, junior, or senior in the next academic year and whose permanent residence is in Butler or Bremer County. The recipient must attend an Iowa college or university and major in an agriculture or human science related field.
