Weld County 4-H Foundation Scholarship
Emily is the daughter of Bryan and Amy Hogsett of Eaton, CO. She is an 11-year member of Galeton 4-H and is involved in cake decorating and artistic clothing buymanship. She has also participated in breeding beef, scrapbooking, sport fishing, visual arts and home design and décor. Emily is a Senior at Eaton High School and is involved in FCCLA (Family Community and Career Leaders of America), National Honor Society, Eaton Football Varsity/Jr. Team Manager, Eaton Wrestling Varsity/Jr. Team Manager and Eaton Red Ink Newspaper Writer. She is planning to attend CSU in Ft Collins and study to become a Family and Consumer Science Educator to make a difference in students’ lives.
Her passion for service and leadership began when she joined 4-H at eight years old. As she grew older, she realized how important both are to her as she hopes to teach FCS at a rural high school. Her time in 4-H has helped her grow into an outgoing person who has strengths in public speaking, leadership, service, and a hard work ethic. Through 4-H, she was able to branch out and start serving her community at a young age. With her club, Galeton 4-H, Emily helped with Galeton Harvest Dinner, Galeton Elementary School Carnival, and at the Weld County Food Bank. She then even took on leadership roles at a young age by helping at the 4-H showcase with Cake Decorating and Sport Fishing and with the Weld County Cake Decorating Workshops teaching unit 1. Her freshman year she joined FCCLA. she was the only freshman that stayed involved the whole year. As she continued through high school, FCCLA became a huge part of her life. FCCLA continued Emily’s push to serve, lead, and make a difference in her community. Emily wants to continue to help people and make a difference in the world. Emily’s strong activity in leadership and service has helped her to decide to continue to serve her community and lead the future of America through teaching. This love started when she joined 4-H and grew in it. 4-H helped give her the confidence to go out and join other activities and involve others while doing so. She joined FCCLA because she wanted to learn more about many of the FCS projects, she enjoyed in 4-H. People ask me why she wanted to be a teacher all the time. It is no secret that teachers don’t make a lot of money, so why be one? It all comes down to impact. 4-H and FCCLA has made such a huge impact on her life and given her the opportunity to do the same for others. Emily always wants the opportunity to make an impact in people’s lives, and she can’t think of a better way for her to do so than by teaching FCS.
Emily is the recipient of the Weld County 4-H Foundation Scholarship.
