2nd Annual Mark Lemenager Scholarship Program
In 2016 the Yuba-Sutter Fair created the Mark Lemenager Scholarship in honor of a great man. Mark was a huge part of the Yuba-Sutter Fair for many, many years, supporting the staff with setting up the fairgrounds in the livestock area, supporting kids on auction day and helping to make sure the livestock area was running smoothly. Mark was hard working, a great role model for people in the community as well as every child’s life he touched. The 2016 animal was raised by Lexi Smestadmoen, named the hog ‘Integrity’ because of the type of character Mark Lemenager had.
On August, 6, 2016 Integrity was sold at the 2016 Yuba-Sutter Fair Auction for a total of $16,850! 2016, the Mark Lemenager Scholarship Committee awarded scholarship’s to Madison Goss for $1,000 and to MaKenzie Halstead for $500, contributing to their college education.
On August 5, 2017 the Mark Lemenager animal sold for $10, 077.25. Thank uyou to those that bid/bought in 2017!!
