Mark-Brashear-Simpson4-H, $1,000, Chapman University, Film Production

Mark Brashear Simpson plans to use his $1,000 scholarship to attend Chapman University, where he is interested in film production with a focus on directing. This Valley Center High School senior has entered lambs, goats, poultry, swine and cattle at the Fair while holding leadership positions within 4-H. Mark says, “I have raised almost every species that can be shown at the Fair with success, and have always taken home more value in knowledge and experience than ribbons and an auction check.”
