The Texas 4-H Foundation has set up a Steve Jones Memorial 4-H Scholarship Fund. Steve’s wife, Patti, was very excited about the creation of this scholarship in his memory and will be placing this option for giving in lieu of flowers within the Lubbock Obituary notice. Those of you who might want to contribute can send your donation to the 4-H Foundation with a notation in the “Memo” line designating the “Steve Jones Memorial 4-H Scholarship“.
Donations can be mailed to:
Texas 4-H Foundation
P O Box 11020
College Station, TX 77842
Steve and Patti Jones played a monumental role in soliciting the funds to underwrite this year’s 4-H Roundup and their tireless efforts will be remembered by those of us charged with funding this historical event.
Please keep Patti and their family in your prayers.

“Deep in the Heart” reveals the true-life story of Mr. Richard “Dick” Wallrath. No one person has ever given more financially to the Texas 4-H and Texas FFA Scholarship Programs than Dick Wallrath. He has also provided tremendous financial assistance to 4-H and FFA members through major livestock show premium auctions.
We sincerely request that our Extension and 4-H Family support the emotion-packed documentary of Dick’s life for two reasons. First, it could have an impact on your own life. And secondly, because of Mr. Wallrath’s continued generosity a portion of all ticket sales will go to both Texas 4-H and Texas FFA to further strengthen their much needed scholarship programs.
Please promote the importance of the opening weekend of February 17th. The success of this opening weekend will dictate their plan for nationwide release. Of course, the more success the movie has, the more funds are contributed to Texas 4-H and Texas FFA.
