In 2016 the Yuba-Sutter Fair Board of Directors created the Mark Lemenager Scholarship in honor of a great man and Yuba-Sutter Fair volunteer – Mark Lemenager.
Mark was a huge part of the Yuba-Sutter Fair for 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 a hard working man and a great role model for the children in our community.2023 SCHOLARSHIP APPLICATION (MONETARY AWARD)
