From 4-H…Growing and Thriving, By Pamela Rose, State 4-H Program Leader
Kudos to our 4-H members! We know we have amazing young people in our 4-H program. This story from the Benton County Democrat Herald just shows another great example of young people making a difference in the lives of others. Thanks Carolyn Ashton, for sharing this news story with us!
Speaking of terrific 4-H members, yesterday in Deschutes County, a 4-H member did something that has been done in Oregon in 11 years. A 4-H member received the 10-step Dad Potter award! If you are not familiar, this is the most elite 4-H Horse Award we recognize – it’s quite a feat, takes significant teamwork and dedication, and it’s pretty darn awesome! Kudos to Lauren Walley, Deschutes County 4-H member for this terrific accomplishment! Kudos also to her 4-H leader, Heather Zumwalt, and Karissa Dishon also shared with me that another Kudos goes to Candi Bothum who was the 4-H club leader who taught Heather how to ride. Kudos all around!
Kudos to the Engineering and Science Camp held in Ontario at the Four Rivers Community School (SMILE School) last week. Kudos to Barbara Brody for sharing this story with us that posted in the Malheur County Argus Observer. Thanks to your leadership in bringing all of these partners together for this event.
9 Reasons Why Being In 4-H Makes You A Better Person
News articles on the web have been quite depressing lately. Running across a positive news article reminds us of the great things happening in the world that we can be proud to know we’ve had a hand in creating.
A big thank you to Extension and 4-H Faculty and Staff for continuing to teach the future leaders to be better people.
