    For the last 17 years a unique 4-H/FFA scholarship program was established in memory of a young Mercer Countian, Dustin Worthington, who lost his life in a car accident.

    Dustin was only 17 years old and dearly loved cattle. Since Dustin had decided early in his life that he did not want to attend college but rather become a cattle farmer, the “Dustin Worthington I Love Cows” essay contest was created. To date, over $400,000 worth in animals have been awarded to 246 Kentucky Youth.
