Two Solano County teens received Lynne Burns Memorial 4-H scholarships for their leadership and achievements in the Solano County 4-H Youth Development Program.

The scholarship, sponsored by the Solano County 4-H Leaders Council, memorializes Lynne Burns of Rio Vista, a nine-year Solano County 4-H Program Representative who died of cancer Nov. 17, 1995, according to a press release.

Colleen Bohannan is a 13-year member of the Westwind 4-H Club. Colleen represents 4-H as a California State 4-H Ambassador. She raises guide dogs for the blind and enjoyed many opportunities to learn leadership, service and life skills through the 4-H program. Colleen will attend Oregon State University, where she will major in athletic training.

Kiersten Bakke is a graduate from Fairfield High School, where she preformed with the Scarlet Brigade marching band, was an active member in the leadership program and played varsity badminton. She has been a member of the Westwind 4-H Club for 12 years. Kiersten will attend California Polytechnic State University, San Luis Obispo, in the fall and will major in architectural engineering.

Applicants must hold at least a gold star rank, have a 3.0 grade point average, obtain several recommendations, write an essay and sit for an interview. Each of the students excelled in the 4-H program and has also, through 4-H projects and leadership, developed interests and shaped talents that will propel them toward future success.

Vacaville students recognized for volunteerism

Landon Damiao, 17, and Aaron Fearon, 9, both of Vacaville, have been recognized by the Kohl’s Cares Scholarship Program for making a positive impact in their communities through volunteerism.

Overall, 258 young persons from California will receive a $50 gift card and recognition certificate from Kohl’s to honor their community service efforts, according to a press release. These winners qualify for the chance to receive a total of $10,000 in scholarships for higher education.

Local woman makes honor roll at Oregon State University

Julia E. Schultz of Vacaville, a freshman at Oregon State University majoring in pre-mechanical engineering, earned a place on the honor roll with a 4.0 grade point average for the spring term.

To be on the honor roll, students must carry at least 12 graded hours of course work, according to a press release.

Local child wins big in pageant

Zeail Keiffer, a 6-month-old from Travis Air Force Base, won several awards through the California Tropic International Pageant system. He collected four trophies: Best Smile, Youngest Baby, Little Mr. Swimwear and Little Mr. Westernwear. In addition, Zeail won an educational toy and $400 toward his next pageant. Zeail also picked up three individual sponsors after his win.

Good job, Zeail.
