Brandon Couch 4-H Beef Project Scholarship Endowment
Brandon touched the lives of many during his short time on earth. Fellow athletes, coaches, and friends from New Palestine High School, Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology, and the Hancock County 4-H community recognized him not only as an individual with integrity, but one who respected those in leadership roles. He often performed extraordinary acts of kindness and helpfulness to those around him. To honor Brandon’s legacy, his family and fiancée created two scholarships: the Brandon Couch Leadership and Perseverance Award and the Brandon Couch 4-H Beef Project Scholarship.
Applicants must be graduating high school seniors, intend to pursue an accredited degree or certification, be currently enrolled in a Hancock County 4-H program, be currently enrolled, and have at least two years experience in the Hancock County 4-H Beef Project. Applicants need not be residents of Hancock County. Preference will be given to students who have exhibited respect for leadership, shown acts of kindness and helpfulness to fellow 4-Hers, displayed integrity and showmanship, and been personally involved in the care and show preparation of animals. Financial need may be considered. See guidebook for a complete list of requirements.
