2023 Marilyn Sharp 4-H Scholarship awarded to Emilee Bickley

Lacombe County, Alberta, [November 6, 2023] — MEGlobal Canada ULC (MEGlobal) is proud to announce that Emilee Bickley has been named the recipient of the 2023 Marilyn Sharp 4-H Scholarship. This is a post-secondary scholarship for current or previous members of a 4-H Club in the West Central Region.

The scholarship was established by MEGlobal and Dow, which operate manufacturing facilities at the Prentiss site in Alberta, in recognition of Marilyn’s longtime volunteer contributions as a member of the Prentiss Community Advisory Panel (CAP). The successful applicant must demonstrate academic achievement, overall 4-H achievement and public speaking participation.

Emilee, who is currently in her fifth year of an Education Degree specializing in Elementary Science at the University of Calgary, is in the process of applying to the University of Calgary Faculty of Veterinary Medicine Program, set to begin at the conclusion of her Education Degree. Her dedication and commitment have been evident in both the 4-H community, as well as her academic career. Emilee noted that her skills acquired through 4-H have been major assets in her education programs.

“One of the biggest things that stands out to me is my confidence. I noticed that my public speaking experiences from 4-H not only helped me for presentations and presenting in front of large groups, but even being able to interact with people informally within a group,” she said.

MEGlobal Communications Specialist Scott Maetche said the scholarship is a way to highlight the value 4H offers to local youth, while recognizing a dedicated community leader.

“Marilyn Sharp has been an incredible neighbor, whose perspectives have been vital in helping our industry understand the priorities and needs of the local community,” he said. “Emilee’s commitment to 4-H and her post-secondary education is very impressive. Her work ethic and interpersonal skills will serve her extremely well in her schooling and beyond. MEGlobal is so proud to support Emilee’s efforts through this scholarship.”
