4-H Annual Achievement Banquet “Finding 4-Her’s”

— Written By

Brunswick County 4-H Teen Council Achievement Banquet Committee planned and executed the annual 4-H Achievement Banquet on Tuesday, January 21st 2015. 4-H Clubs, Youth members and Youth and adult volunteers were honored for their 4-H service, volunteerism, contest, and accomplishments for the previous 2014 year.

Committee members Reagan Dumproff (past 4-H Teen Council Secretary) Reilly Dumproff, Chris Gallup (4-H  Teen Council Secretary), Sadie Huntley (past Teen Council Vice President), Bobbi Jane Lawrence (4-H Teen Council President), Emily Toney, Katlyn Toney (4-H Teen Council Vice President), and Mackenzie Snyder (4-H Teen Council Parliamentarian) planned the theme, a table decorating contest, and narrated the evening’s festivities along with 4-H staff Dr. Katie McKee and Angie Lawrence.

The theme this year is “Finding 4-Her’s,” based on the movie “Finding Nemo.” Among the many awards given during the evening to 4-H members and volunteers, hi-lights of the evening included announcing 4-H Club of the Year, Bits and Boots; and announcing our 4-H youth of the year. 4-H youth of the year were chosen through and Application, Interview, Resume, and Essay. One winner was chosen in each age category. Autumn Apple, from Tinker Divas 4-H Club, won the 9-10 year old age division. Lena Devlin, from the Bits and Boots 4-H Club, won the 11-13 year old division. Alexis Apple, from 4-H Teen Council, 4-H TiLT Youth Volunteers, and Tinker Divas 4-H Club, won the 14-18 year old age division.

Among many other awards and recognitions some included recognizing all of our 4-H Adult Volunteers, including 4-H Volunteer of the Year Jane Kulesza; and NC Governors Volunteer Awards recipients George Wong-Chong, Trisha Apple, and Jane Kulesza. A few of the youth recognitions included youth receiving their 1st year pins Reagan and Reilly Dumproff and Rose Green;  4-H Teens in Leadership Training Youth Volunteers received Teen Leadership pins;  4-H Project Record Book county contestants were recognized as well as overall class winners from the 2014 4-H fair.
