Franklin County 4-H’ers received honors during the recent State 4-H Congress. This year’s 4-H Congress was conducted in Raleigh, July 16th-19th, and attracted more than 300 young people and their adult leaders for activities including presentations on a variety of subjects, leadership and citizenship training, service opportunities, officer elections and more.

Emma Haynes, 16, daughter of Jody and Tara Haynes of Youngsville, was inducted into the 4-H Honor Club, one of the highest honors a 4-H’er can achieve. New Honor Club members were tapped during a candlelight ceremony Saturday night, July 16th.

Membership in the Honor Club is based on service to the 4-H program, leadership, moral standards, 4-H activities and project achievement. Less than one-half of 1 percent of North Carolina 4-H’ers are selected for membership each year. Members must be at least 16 years old and have a minimum of three years 4-H experience.

Haynes is a member of the Franklin County 4-H County Council. She has been active in the 4-H program for 11 years.

Ayden Wyatt, 11, won a gold medal in Fisheries and Aquatic Resources. Mia Clark, 15, won a gold medal in Fruits and Vegetable Use. Emma Haynes, 16, won a silver medal in Citizenship and Community Service. Bryson Freed, 14, won a silver medal in Open Class. Lance Williams, 18, won a bronze medal in Arts and Communications. Meredith Potter, 15, won a bronze medal in Foods and Nutrition. Bryelle Simon, 8, participated in the Open Class category. Presentations are designed to test 4-H’ers’ knowledge of a variety of subjects.

Lance Williams, 18, son of Robin and Debbie Williams of Bunn, was elected as the NC 4-H Vice President for the coming year. Youth campaigned for state offices and new officers were elected Monday, July 18th.

Meredith Potter, 15, daughter of Gilbert and Jan Marie of Bunn, will be the 4-H President for the Northeast District Teen Council this coming year.

4-H is North Carolina’s largest youth development organization, equipping 229,500 young people each year with the skills to succeed and improve the world around them. 4-H programs and camps encourage young people to “learn by doing,” helping them to develop into active, contributing citizens. NC State Extension and the Cooperative Extension Program at N.C. A&T State University coordinates 4-H programs statewide.
