Three members of the Jefferson County 4-H Youth Development Program were recently given the opportunity to gain state level leadership and community service hours.


The 4-Hers, Jada Barron, Sylvana Burgess and Dajana Lee, all members of the Healthy Clovers 4-H Club, volunteered to assist with meal service at the Teen Star/Hall of Fame Banquet.


The event was held during the annual Arkansas 4-H Teen Leader Conference, according to a news release.


“The Arkansas 4-H Hall of Fame originated to recognize truly outstanding teen 4-H members who have achieved at the highest level and who have contributed to making Arkansas 4-H a dynamic and well-known organization,” said Pia Woods, Jefferson County Cooperative Extension Service staff chair and 4-H agent.


“Serving at this event gives younger 4-H members, ages 11-14, an inside peek into what the Teen Leader Conference and the Teen Star/Hall of Fame Banquet are all about and hopefully encourages them to participate in both when they are eligible,” Woods said.

Jefferson County Cooperative Extension Service is part of the University of Arkansas System Division of Agriculture which offers all its Extension and Research programs to all eligible persons without discrimination.
