The Lewis and Clark Natural Resources District (LCNRD) awarded two Patefield-Green Memorial Scholarships to high school seniors in 2022.  The LCNRD provides college scholarship funds to graduates who intend to pursue agricultural related career, in hopes that they will return and contribute to local communities and to the protection and conservation of our natural resources.

The 2022 recipients of the Patefield-Green Memorial Scholarship are:

  • Ethan Becker, Cedar Catholic High School, Hartington, NE. Ethan is the son of Stan and Julie Becker.
  • Emily Woockman, Wausa Public Schools, Wausa, NE. Emily is the daughter of Otto and Rita Woockman. 

Scholarship recipients are presented a $1000 scholarship to use towards tuition and fees at the college of their choice towards an agriculture related course of study.

The Patefield-Green Memorial Scholarship is named after two outstanding LCNRD directors, who served their communities and believed in providing educational opportunities to local youth to encourage natural resource awareness.  Warren Patefield was from Laurel and was a conservation leader on a local, state, and national level until his death in 1985. Ken Green resided in Allen and was a man of quiet dignity who worked tirelessly, before his passing, on resource projects in the community.
