The Jama Harms Memorial Scholarship fund is presented in memory of Jama Harms. She was a dedicated Lake County 4-H member who died unexpectedly in 1995. Jama was a member of the Goose Lake Livestock 4-H Club where she raised market lambs. She also enjoyed participating in the 4-H Dog Project and had a strong interest in training guide dogs.
The memorial scholarship was established in 1996 by Jama's former 4-H leaders. Each year a lamb is donated by a 4-H club, 4-H member or individual and is auctioned off to perpetuate the fund. Over the last fifteen years, the memorial scholarship fund has assisted over 30 Lake County graduates with college-related expenses.
Donations can be made at the Lake County 4-H and FFA Market Sale during the Lake County Fair or by calling the OSU Lake County Extension Office at 541-947-6054 or emailing Laurie Rice.
