*Please note the deadline of February 5, 2010!*

We are extremely pleased to offer a scholarship in honor and memory of Mr.
Stan Kalino, a youth livestock supporter who passed away on September 2009.
Through generous donations from friends and family, a scholarship has been
created in his name.  This scholarship will be awarded annually during the
Top Five Heifer Drive at the Georgia Junior National Livestock Show.

Mr. Stan and his wife Jean have always been champions for youth livestock
programs, whether it be in California, Georgia or any place in between.
They served as the California Junior Angus Advisors for numerous years,
spent their spare time and vacations supporting youth that exhibited cattle
at the local, regional and national level.  After retiring from his career
at Lockheed Missile Space & Command, Mr. Stan spent his time either on the
golf course or serving as a “cheerleader” for “his” adopted kids at shows
throughout the nation.  Always willing to help a youth in need financially
or emotionally, Mr. Stan was always there to listen and question their
plans.  His hard work ethic, persistence, determination to get the job done
and love for the youth program are characteristics that his family plan to
carry on for years to follow.

We are looking for hard-working, dedicated students who embody the standards
of excellence demonstrated in both 4-H and FFA Steer and/or Heifer
projects.   We need your help in identifying these young people and
selecting a recipient for this year’s scholarship.   The scholarship is a
cash award in the amount of $500.   Details are explained in the attached
“Statement of Scholarship Agreement” sheet.  Applicants must be graduating
from high school in the spring of 2010.

An application form which must be signed by the student’s County Extension
Agent and/or Ag. Ed. Teacher, may be found at **.   The signing teacher
or agent must also attach a letter of recommendation.   In some cases, an
applicant may enclose letters from both of these individuals.   The
completed application and attached letters of recommendation must be
received (postmarks will not be accepted) by Heather K. Shultz, at the
indicated address, *no later than February 5, 2010.*

Thank you for your help in spreading the word about this scholarship and for
your part in helping us identify these outstanding youth livestock
producers.   We look forward to receiving your applications.

Kindest regards,

Emily Schattler
