Memorial Scholarship Established
Sevier County 4-H has announced the 7th Annual Erica Manning 4-H Camp Memorial Scholarship Fund.
Erica was tragically killed in an automobile accident on December 30, 2005 at the age of 21. Each year, the Sevierville Sunrise Rotary Club, local businesses and several local individuals provide donations for scholarships for individual 4-H members to assist them in attending 4-H Camp.
These scholarships are awarded based on need and 4-H member participation. In 2011, 33 individual 4-H members received either partial or full scholarships for 4-H Camp. Contributions to the Erica Manning 4-H Camp Memorial Scholarship Fund are welcomed.
At the time of her death, Erica was a Senior at Carson Newman College in Jefferson City. As a Sevier County student, Erica was very active in the Sevier County 4-H program while at New Center Elementary and Sevier County High School.
Erica participated in most every 4-H activity and was most active in the 4-H leadership project. She was involved in the 4-H Lead Team at New Center as a 7th & 8th grader. She obtained membership in the 4-H Honor Club where she provided leadership to a multitude of county events, while in high school. She served as a teen leader at 4-H Camp for two summers.
To honor Erica’s outstanding contributions as a Sevier County 4-H Member, the 4-H Camp Scholarships are now named in her memory. Erica exemplified the 4-H Motto with her life, “To Make The Best Better”.
To raise money for the scholarship fund and support for the 4-H Program, 4-H members will be selling concessions at the Sevier County Master Gardeners Flower and Garden Show and Sale on April 21, at the Sevier County Fairgrounds. The public is invited to visit 4-H members at the Flower and Garden Show and support the scholarship fund.
All contributions are tax deductible and will be used to assist deserving Sevier County 4-H members to have a camp experience at the Clyde Austin 4-H Center, in Greeneville, Tennessee.
