Chloe Toombs of the Cavendish 4-H Club is among twelve winners of the 2019 TD 4-H Agriculture Scholarship.
The $2,500 scholarship is awarded to students pursuing post-secondary studies in the field of agriculture, agricultural science or agricultural business beginning this fall. Chloe is a recent graduate of Bluefield High School.
“We could not be more proud of this year’s scholarship recipients, and wish to congratulate them all,” said Shannon Benner, CEO of 4-H Canada. “We are fortunate to work with partners like TD who recognize and support our mission to empower youth to be responsible, caring and contributing leaders that affect positive change in the world around them.”
Together, 4-H Canada and TD are committed to promoting positive youth development, and providing youth with tools and guidance to lay the foundation for a life-long love of learning in the field of agriculture.
“TD is proud to be a part of the 4-H scholarship program,” says Alec Morley, TD Senior Vice President, National Agriculture Services. “Supporting 4-H’s commitment to develop the agricultural leaders of tomorrow is another way we’re helping to enrich the communities in which we live and work.”
