Hill Country CattleWomen award scholarships

The Hill Country CattleWomen awarded scholarships to two former Kerr County students for the 2019-20 academic year.

Erin Bernhard, a senior at Texas A&M University in San Antonio, was awarded a $5,000 scholarship. She is an International Business Management major and plans to graduate in the summer of 2020.

Clayton Meadows, the son of Chad and Ginger Meadows of Hunt, was awarded a $3,000 scholarship. He is a senior at Sul Ross State University in Alpine and is pursuing a Bachelor of Science degree in Natural Resource Management with a concentration in Sustainable Ranch Management.

In addition to the two Kerr County recipients, the Hill Country CattleWomen awarded six scholarships — totaling $26,000 — to students from Kendall, Gillespie, Llano and Bexar counties. The group has awarded $364,950 in scholarships since 1999 to local junior- and senior-level college attendees from the Hill Country.

Hill Country CattleWomen monies come from the group’s annual fundraiser, HCCW Spring Roundup Dinner and Dance.

“The membership would like to extend our thanks to the local merchants, banks and ranchers for their generous contributions to this event,” an HCCW spokeswoman said in a press release. “Join our efforts for beef promotion, agriculture education, scholarships and support of personal property rights.”
