4-H Manitoba is pleased to announce the recipients of the 2022 Leaders of Tomorrow Scholarships.
The Manitoba Government generously established a $1 million endowment fund with the Brandon Area Community Foundation, which provided $42,500 for scholarships this year. Four current and former 4-H Manitoba members were selected to receive scholarships towards their post-secondary education.
“We congratulate the 2022 scholarship recipients and wish them all the best in their education and future careers. 4-H members of today are tomorrow’s future leaders,” said Philip Fenez, President of 4-H Manitoba. “The calibre of scholarship applicants was exceptional. Our program is proud to support our members, enabling them to take future leadership roles in agriculture, environmental sustainability and their community as a whole.”
4-H Manitoba’s goal is to build leadership in youth and adults and enhance the development of life and leadership skills as youth “Learn To Do By Doing”.
“More than 100 years ago, Canada’s 4-H movement began here in Manitoba, paving the way for a long and successful history of opportunities for Manitoba’s youth to develop leadership and communication skills while learning about agriculture and environmental sustainability,” said Agriculture Minister Derek Johnson. “On behalf of the Manitoba government, I congratulate all of the 2022 scholarship recipients and extend my heartfelt wishes as they head toward a bright future in our province.”
The Leaders of Tomorrow scholarships were awarded in honour and recognition of four long-serving leaders.
