The Texas Hill Country Dorper Sheep Association will award two college scholarships for the first time this fall in memory of one of the state’s pioneers in the Dorper sheep industry.

According to a March 9 Texas Press Association press release, the scholarships, valued at $1,000 each, are open to any Texas resident. One will be awarded to a high school senior graduating this spring and the other to a college student who will be at least a junior in any Texas college or university this fall.

Scholarship requirements include involvement in agriculture, and especially the Dorper sheep industry in Texas. Recipients with agriculture-related majors in college will be given special consideration.

The scholarships have been launched in memory of Brad Bernhard, who died of cancer at the age of 48 in 2011. Bernhard, who lived in Fredericksburg, was one of the original founders of the Texas Hill Country Dorper Association and one of the earliest owners of Dorper sheep in Texas.

Dorpers and White Dorpers are hair sheep developed in South Africa in the 1930s as a breed that would thrive in a low-rainfall environment and produce a high-quality carcass. The Texas Hill Country Dorper Association was organized in 2007 to promote Dorper and White Dorper sheep in Texas.

Deadline for applications to be received is Sunday, April 15. Applicants may complete a scholarship application form online or find out more about the two scholarships by going to the Texas Hill Country Dorper Association website at http://thcdorperassociation.com.

For more information, interested students may contact the Texas Hill Country Dorper Association scholarship committee chairman Garet von Netzer at 830-997-3210 or gvnppb@gmail.com or scholarship committee liaison Connie Bernhard at 830-864-4695 or at bernhardranch@ctesc.net.
