Memorial Scholarship:

Gary Baehler & Krista Baehler Memorial Scholarship:
Gary Baehler was a long time advocate of 4-H. He was active as a 4-H member in Sharon Springs and Collegiate 4-H at KSU. He got his girls Kendra & Krista, involved in 4-H as well and was their biggest fan. He was active as a 4-H parent, volunteer, project leader, fair board member, and sponsor for the Harvey County 4-H Program. Dr. Baehler owned and operated Hesston Veterinary Clinic for 35 years until he passed away tragically from a heart attack in May 2021. His patient nature allowed him to pass on knowledge to others and mentor students that were interested in veterinary medicine.  His youngest daughter, Krista Baehler passed away after battling leukemia in April 2020. Krista was active in livestock and food/nutrition projects through her involvement in Harvey County 4-H. She pursued a degree in dietetics from Kansas State and utilized her knowledge to teach and create a food and nutrition program for youth in Omaha, NE.

In memory of Gary and Krista, the family has set up this scholarship program to recognize the achievements of students pursuing a degree in Veterinary Medicine, Animal Science, or Dietetics, Food Science.
