Addison Goldenberg, 9, smiles widely when she learns she won first for her age group in brown Swiss dairy cattle Saturday. Later, she won Grand Champion and a $10,000 scholarship for college as the best of the breed for all age groups, the result of her first appearance in San Antonio. Her father, Adam Goldenberg, said he was surprised and pleased. She won $2,000 cash at the McLennan County Fair, and $1,000 cash in Fort Worth, which goes into her college savings as well. Goldenberg’s first year in 4-H shows great promise. The family keeps the cow as breeding stock. Photo by Paula Christine Schuler
