This scholarship is in honor of the late John Klossner, a young man who touched many lives during his short Badger Dairy Club career. The scholarship is given in memory of John who tragically passed away in an accident while exhibiting at one of his favorite events, the Wisconsin State Fair. John was active in the Green County Junior Holstein Association and served on the Wisconsin Junior Holstein Association Junior Activities Committee. He attended the University of Wisconsin – Madison and was an active member in Badger Dairy Club and Alpha Gamma Rho - Iota. He was also an accomplished cattle showman and had won many awards. This scholarship was established to award youth that have a similar passion for and involvement in the dairy industry that John exemplified.
