Kyle Boerger, son of Kelly and Karl Boerger, Seaman, is the winner of the first annual $500 4-H Advisory Committee TSC Paper Clover Scholarship.

Adams County 4-H and the West Union Tractor Supply Company have joined forces to raise funds during the annual Spring Paper Clover Campaign, taking place April 13-24. One-hundred percent of the funds raised through the campaign will come back to 4-H at the local, state, and national levels. This is the fourth Paper Clover Campaign to occur since the grand opening of the West Union Tractor Supply Company in June, 2014, and the 4-H Advisory Committee has decided to use the local share of the monies to fund a new 4-H scholarship, the TSC Paper Clover Scholarship.

The first winner of the newly established $500 annual scholarship is Kyle Boerger, son of Kelly and Karl Boerger of Seaman. Boerger is a senior at North Adams High School and has been an active member of the Denim & Dirt 4-H Club for a number of years. He is a camp counselor and served as a mentor with the 4-H Tech Wizards after school program in 2014-15. Boerger ran cross-country in 2015 and is currently on the school’s track team. He plans to major in History, possibly at Wright State University, although his plans continue to evolve.

The Spring Paper Clover Campaign continues through Sunday, April 24. Several 4-H clubs are hosting events during the campaign. Stirrin Up Dust held a car wash on Saturday, April 16 to benefit the Canter’s Cave 4-H Camp Raise the Roof Capital Campaign and Denim & Dirt will conduct a car wash on Saturday, April 23. Also on April 23, the Liberty Land and Livestock 4-H Club will have baked goods available to store visitors for a donation, and the Fantastic 4-H’ers will sponsor a petting zoo. The newly formed Adams County 4-H Junior Leaders will have hot dogs and pop available the afternoon of Sunday, April 24.

Throughout the Spring Paper Clover Campaign, TSC customers can watch for Clover, the 4-H Bear – he has his own TSC vest – and 4-H members helping the cashiers, urging customers to donate $1 at check out to benefit 4-H.
