Kansas Livestock Foundation Awards Scholarships To Clawson, Zerger

June 25, 2019

Gatlin Clawson of Meade has been awarded the GoBob Pipe & Steel/Kansas Livestock Foundation (KLF) $1,000 Cattlemen’s Scholarship. Clawson, the son of Dan and Tamra Clawson, will be a freshman at Kansas State University this fall. He is pursuing a dual degree in agricultural economics and business marketing.

The GoBob scholarship is awarded to a student entering or returning to a Kansas community or senior college and pursuing a degree in agriculture or a related field. Funding was generated through the purchase of GoBob products by KLA members, plus proceeds from the auction of a Hay Monster bale feeder at the KLA Convention. GoBob is a distributor of farming supplies, including steel pipe and gates, corral and fencing materials and heavy-duty equipment.

Kristina Zerger from Cheney, daughter of Tarry and Nancy Zerger, has received the $500 Fred H. Woodbury Memorial Scholarship through KLF. Zerger will be a senior in animal science at K-State. This award is given in memory of Fred H. Woodbury, a long-time KLA member from Quenemo.

KLA members wishing to leave a similar legacy to assist future generations of Kansas farmers and ranchers should contact Ryan Higbie at the KLA office to discuss available options.
