Alberta Holstein Association Scholarship Program
Congratulations to Michael Hummel on being awarded a scholarship this year.
Mike is the son of Tim & Benita Hummel of Marylander Holsteins, Picture Butte, AB. Mike is currently in his 2nd year at Lethbridge College, enrolled in the Ag Science program, majoring in Animal Science. He is involved on the farm level with breeding decisions and day to day operations when possible. Other interests include being a member of the Lethbridge College Kodiak Men’s Volleyball team and being part of the Green Acres 4-H Club and the Alberta WCC Team.
“From 4-H to my volunteer experience to my education at College, I know that I will be prepared to become a successful dairy farmer and leader within the dairy industry”
