Paul and Jean Hoshiko Memorial Family Scholarship
Emma is the daughter of Cory and Traci Knote of Ft. Lupton, CO. She is an 8-year member of Tailtwisters 4-H Club and is currently involved with market and breeding cattle. She has also participated in market/breeding lambs, restoration, heritage arts and scrapbooking. Emma is a Senior at Frederick High School and has been on the Honor Role since her Freshman year.
Emma plans to attend Montana State University to study engineering. Her goal in her career is to learn as much as she possibly can to help herself grow as a person as well as grow within her career. She also plans to use her degree and career to help others whether that be in community service or within my company. The amazing thing with being an engineer is she has a big range of things she can do or go, and I would like to use that to help others in the best way she can. Emma’s entire life her father has been an engineer himself. He has always been able to travel within his job and seemed to have liked it for the most part. This even as a kid had intrigued her as she has always loved to travel. Then science and math became her favorite subjects which made engineering even more intriguing. Emma got to problem solve in either science or math. Within her career she plans to learn as much as she can to help herself grow as a person and within her career. With this in mind she will then hope to grow to the top in her business. Emma also plans to use her degree and career to help others whether that be through community service or a project important to her. Personally, she hopes to go to college, get a good job and end back on the farm. She has always loved agriculture and raising her own cows, so she hopes to do that somewhere in her future.
Emma started 4-H seven years ago. She started by showing lambs for the first three years. I also did restoration and got grand champion one year, and first the second year she did it. She added heritage arts for quilting, which she also got grand champion on, and scrapbooking the following years. The last three years she has shown market beef and breeding heifers. She’s made sale with her market beef the last two years as well. Recently, Emma was Vice President of her club, and then had to be President of her club once the President left for college. She’s always been a leader even at a young age and this gave me an opportunity to continue to do so. She also participated in the CWF and did a lot of community service. She learned how to do fundraisers, handle money and work at these different events. Within the 4H club they also did several community service events including blankets for babies, a peanut butter food drive for the local food pantry as well as a dog/cat food and supply drive for the local human society.
Emma is the recipient of the Paul & Jean Hoshiko Family Memorial Scholarship.
