4-H Awards and Recognition 2022
In Box Elder County 4-H we recognize members of our youth development community who have accomplished special achievements and go the extra mile to make positive learning experiences for 4-H members in our county. We invite you to read the bios below and join us in thanking our community members by sharing their stories. October 4th-9th we will be spotlighting each recipient.
Acting as both a club leader and a county leader for the Teen Council Melanie gives so much of her time to the Box Elder 4-H programs. Melanie took over the Teen Council Advisor position 2 years ago providing structured leadership opportunities to youth through service projects, planning events, and teaching them responsibility. When help is needed, she has always stepped up. To name a few places she has shined this year, she helped in the Cook Shack, lined up classes for the stock show, and is judging 4-H Portfolios for the county contest. The amount of time she spends giving to our programs is unmeasurable. We are grateful for her willing attitude and her “get it done” way that is alway accompanied with a smile. She is an example to all as this year’s Outstanding Leader of the Year.
Tori is the most kind hearted individual around. She is always willing to jump in and help wherever she can, and has taken on the responsibility of running a very well organized goat group of around 30 kids. Her and her family have a goat breeding program that they run and help furnish kids in her club with their project animals for the year. Tori and her family aren’t all about goats either, she does a fantastic job getting her kids well rounded in all parts of 4-H by supporting them in their many ways of being involved. She has passed on her willingness to help onto her own kids, they all spent a good portion of their day helping during judging day for the indoor exhibits this year.. We would like to thank Tori for her multiple years of being an outstanding leader and giving back to 4-H and our community.
The Teen Council has been very busy this year doing service. Here are some of the amazing areas where they help:
Toy drive for Christmas,Random Acts of Kindness at Kent’s,Decoration for Our House St. Patrick day dinner ,Fairgrounds clean up,Farm Field days, Cook Shack at the Fair, Indoor set up and judging clover buds items at the fair. They have put in many hours of service throughout the year. Thank you for your example and your service to Box Elder County!
