S.D. woman receives Bar One Ranch scholarship

Kelsey Repenning, Mitchell, S.D., was awarded the $2,500 Bar One Scholarship Oct. 31 at the American Hereford Association (AHA) Honorees Reception during the AHA Annual Meeting in Kansas City. This scholarship was one of many awarded through the Hereford Youth Foundation of America (HYFA), totaling more than $37,000.

The 20-year-old daughter of Steve and Lori Repenning, Kelsey, is a junior studying animal science and agricultural communications at South Dakota State University. She plans to pursue a graduate degree in ruminant nutrition at Kansas State after graduation.

At the 2014 Junior National Hereford Expo (JNHE), Kelsey was elected to the National Junior Hereford Association board of directors. She was the 2013 South Dakota Beef Ambassador.

George and Karen Sprague of Bar One Ranch, Eugene, Ore., made a generous donation to HYFA in 2011 so that an annual scholarship could be awarded in honor of Ken Tracy, a fellow Hereford breeder who lost his battle with cancer.
