The event is in honor of Denise Tebbe, an amazing woman, whom touched many hearts across Hancock County. She was a teacher who never stopped teaching, even after she retired. Denise was involved with Hancock County Horse & Dog 4-H clubs for over 30 years. We are seeking sponsors to help us to continue her legacy and keep the scholarship available to Hancock County 4-H youth.
Scholarships have been awarded in Denise’s honor to high school students for college use since her passing in 2014. Donations are accepted. Hancock County Junior & Senior Horse Council is striving to continue this memorial scholarship fund.
Denise always believed in “paying it forward” and lived by example. She encouraged everyone around her to “always take a negative and make a positive.” This scholarship is awarded to well deserving 4-H youth that exhibit these qualities and exhibit leadership abilities.
Last year we were able to raise enough money to extend the scholarship another 5 years and we added a second scholarship. In 2019 we will be giving out 2 scholarships to Hancock County 4H Youth that have showed a horse or dog project for 3 years.
