Congratulations to Catharine Renner and Justin Kilgore, recipients of this year’s Nevada County Fairgrounds Foundation Scholarships. The Foundation scholarship is awarded to local high school students who exhibit in the Fair, attend the Fairgrounds Foundation’s speaker series, and write an essay explaining what they learned from the speaker series. Catharine graduated from Bear River and will attend UC Davis this fall as a Nutritional Science major in the College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences. Justin also graduated from Bear River and will attend Butte College in the fall, where he’ll be playing baseball at the college and pursing a career in agriculture. Both Catharine and Justin will be exhibiting at this year’s Fair – both will be showing market steers and Justin’s Ag Mechanics project won best of show – so stop by and congratulate them!
