Before he stepped into the show ring Saturday at the Auglaize County Fair Junior Livestock Sale, 17-year-old Brandon Turner knew no matter how much his dairy steer sold for, the money would be going to a good cause.

That’s because Turner decided he would donate it all to the Nichole “Niki” Renee Schaub 4-H Scholarship Fund. Schaub, a seven-year member of the Happy Herdsmen 4-H Club, died in a car accident in 1991. In honor of her memory, one or more $1,000 scholarships are handed out each year to graduating seniors enrolled in an Auglaize County 4-H club.

On Saturday, Turner added $10,000 to the scholarship fund after selling his reserve champion dairy steer to 29 bidders.

“The Schaub family do so much for 4-H, the fair and just everybody in general,” Turner said. “I wanted to help them make an impact so I decided to donate to their scholarship fund. It’s just something that felt right in my heart.”
