LARAMIE — Two Sublette County students are among those chosen by the Wyoming State 4-H Foundation to receive scholarship funds for academic year 2023-2024. More than $64,000 was awarded to Wyoming 4-Hers attending the University of Wyoming or a Wyoming community college.
Fifteen continuing scholarships ranging from $1,700 to $2,300 were awarded this year, including to Jakobi Hibbert, of Big Piney, who received the Ella E. Schloredt Continuing Award.
Past winners of the scholarship are eligible to receive it again for up to four years as long as they maintain a grade point average of at least 3.0 and meet academic progress requirements.
The Wyoming State 4-H Foundation scholarship committee also awarded $34,000 to first-time scholarship recipients this year. Pinedale’s Morgan Grossman received the Underwood Scholarship of $750.
