GJLF Scholarship Recipients
Junior Livestock Foundation presented six scholarships
to students during the Georgia Junior State Livestock Show in
February. One scholarship of $1,500 was presented to Tyler Claxton
in memory of Lee Harris Jr. and
scholarships were presented to LeAnna Miller of Sylvania, Samantha
Strickland of Perry, Hannah Porter of Chatsworth,
Gibson Priest of Carterville, and Timothy Hubbard of Calhoun.
These scholarships were awarded to students who have shown
beef, dairy, swine, sheep
or goats at the state show at least
once during their four years of high school. View
the 2013 recipients.
GJLF was pleased to assist with the second annual Georgia National
Fair Legislative Showdown. The event gathered legislative officials
who serve on the Georgia Senate and House Ag Committees to show
off their skills in the show ring. Each elected official was paired
with a FFA and 4-H member to learn about showing livestock and
how to prepare their calf for the show ring. Then it was off to
the arena to show what skills they had learned. At the end of the
event the GJLF presented a framed photograph of each legislator
with the FFA or 4-H member who assisted them.
The GJLF is
pleased to offer the Lee Harris Jr. Memorial
Scholarship to a deserving student actively
involved in the Georgia junior livestock program beginning
in 2013. Lee served as a GJLF Board of Director
and had a true passion for the junior livestock industry
and the youth involved. The livestock industry lost a true friend
on June 23, 2012 when Lee passed
away from a farming accident. Due to request from
friends of Lee’s, the GJLF is providing an opportunity
for contributions to be made directly to the GJLF
Lee Harris Jr. Memorial Scholarship fund. These tax
deductible donations will be used to create a perpetual
scholarship program that will be the hallmark of the
GJLF’s program annually. All donors will be
recognized for their support of this program. If you would like
to make a contribution to the GJLF Lee Harris Jr.
Memorial Scholarship, please return the Memorial
Scholarship donation form to the GJLF office.
