(Shenandoah)--When Dave York was growing up in the Farragut/Riverton area of Fremont County, he was always proud of his grandpa, Jesse McIntyre. And for good reason.
Jesse and his wife, Irene, were fixtures in the Fremont and Page County areas for decades as Jesse worked his auctioneering/real estate business. Over the years Jesse built an outstanding reputation as someone who really knew and understood land values while at the same time being an effective communicator with people. Jesse also loved 4H, as he explained many times to his grandson that "4H has been good to me".
Jesse and Irene are gone now, but Dave's mother and Jesse and Irene's daughter, Janell McIntyre, still owns and runs the family business today in Shenandoah. She made sure as she raised her children that 4H was accessible and Dave enjoyed the many years of activities and projects that helped him gain the leadership skills he uses today in his life and career.
Dave, also the District Conservationist for Cass and Audubon Counties, is proud to once again remind local folks of the Jesse A. & Irene W. McIntyre Scholarship for graduating Fremont County 4Hers. Jesse believed in 4H' values of development of strong future leaders, symbolized by the four H's of head, heart, hands and health and he made sure those values were always a part of his life.
In the video below Dave will tell us more about his grandparent's scholarship and how Fremont County young people can learn more and get involved!
