The 2008 Johnny and Mary Lee Wilson 4-H Scholarship has been awarded to Abby Loessin of Nueces County in recognition of her accomplishments as the first place winner in the District 11 4-H Senior Beef Record Book Program.

Any 4-H member from 18 counties in District 11 who is active in the 4-H beef program applies by submitting a record book. Careful selection of the winner is based on leadership, projects, achievements and strong involvement background as evidenced by the record book.

This scholarship was established by family and friends to honor the Wilsons, of Corpus Christi, who were strong supporters of the 4-H program.
