TOPEKA — After receiving letters from across the 109th Kansas House District, State Rep. Troy Waymaster has selected Garrett Thielen, 13, from Dorrance, for a scholarship to the 4-H Citizenship in Action Program.
“I am proud to award Garrett with this scholarship,” Rep. Waymaster said. “Garrett has demonstrated interest and curiosity of how state government functions, and the 4-H Citizenship in Action Program is a great opportunity to learn.”
Rep. Waymaster also chose Thielen because of his 5-year record in 4-H, and desire to positively affect his Kansas community. Garrett also possesses an ambition to pursue elected office in the future. The 4-H program is Feb. 19-20.
