4-H Scholarship

“My passion for animals led me to 4H. My enthusiasm for learning is an enormous part of my life.”

Graduating fourth in her Valley Center High School class of 282 with a 4.35 GPA, 4H $5,000 recipient Victoria Laird of Valley Center has been accepted to so many universities that she is still mulling her options. Beginning as a “skinny little fifth-grader with an uncommon love for chickens,” Victoria says her Fair experience has enabled her to “grow proficient in knowledge of poultry and showmanship, expand my horizons and discover how to succeed by following my passion.” Valley Center teacher Thomas Buck believes, “Victoria will make an outstanding contribution.”
