Howard Kamin

Howard Kamin

Howard started the Scholarship Fund in 1983 with $300, believing that the Ag Club needed to be more than just a luncheon club. He discussed it with other members and went to the Bank of Louisville to start the endowment. It took five years to accumulate enough to award the first scholarship. The fund has grown to $135,000 through involvements with N.A.I.L.E., Freddy Farm Bureau, the Ag Development Board, increased donations to the Sale of Champions at the State Fair, and general community involvement with the Ag Club. Howard’s dedication and perseverance have made the scholarship fund a tremendous success for the Ag Club and the community we serve.
