Island County 4-H Achievement/Rally Night celebrated past achievements and welcomed new members.

Jackie Vannice, 4-H program coordinator, described the celebration as, “Probably the most enjoyable event we have all year. It’s such a pleasure to be able to award our entire 4-H family for their hard work and accomplishments throughout the year.”

The evening opened with a presentation of flags followed by 4-H’er Allyson Roberts’ rendition of the National Anthem.

A candle lighting ceremony marked the recognition of new 4-H members for 2010-2011.

Graduating 4-H members Jayme Hunt, Lance Kidder, Amelia King, Melissa Clark, Alissa Coupe, Allison Duvenez, Adrianna Royal, Christina Fry, Lindsey Johnson, Tailynn Olmstead and Maggie Schuster were recognized for their achievements within the program.

Winner of the 4-H’er of the Year award, Emily Bain, is an Oak Harbor High School senior and is part of the Central Whidbey Cattlemen and Rock’n Doodle Poultry.

Megan Roberts, of Oak Harbor, who participates with K-9 Korps, won the 4-H Leader of the Year award and Sue Williams, of Clinton, leader of the South Whidbey Centaurs and superintendent of the Horse Division, was awarded 4-H superintendent of the year.

“We have many people within Island County 4-H who are deserving of these awards, but each year we find there are those that exceed our expectations in many ways,” Vannice said.

Island County 4-H offers programs for ages 5 through 19. Participants are encouraged to choose a project of interest and work with parents, leaders and other mentors that provide leadership, learning experiences and a meaningful opportunity to help support the community. The program also offers kids a chance to participate in the Island County Fair and State Fair in Puyallup.
