Jay Hunt


Jay Hunt, Tonagnoxie High School, was recognized for founding and managing the Jay Hunt Annual Heifer Program. Each year, he works with the 4-H and Future Farmers of America to select one youth to receive a free calf to raise and breed. Jay started the program by donating a calf from his own herd, which he supports by working 30 hours per week after school. Jay requires that each winner donate his or her calf s first offspring back to the program.
