4-H'er Honored at Awards Luncheon
Meghan Crawford of Forsyth County was honored for her achievements at the annual North Carolina 4-H Scholarship and Awards Reception and Partnership Luncheon held in Raleigh during North Carolina 4-H Congress.
The Scholarship and Awards Reception and Partnership Luncheon celebrates outstanding North Carolina 4-H’ers who have distinguished themselves through their long-term project work, as delegates to national 4-H events, and recognizes those youth who are awarded college scholarships. This year 4-H awarded nearly 80 college scholarships to outstanding youth.
In addition to celebrating the achievements of 4-H youth, the event brings those young people face-to-face with the partners who make 4-H possible. Each 4-H’er meets and enjoys lunch with the donor who provided the funds for the scholarship or award provided that day.
“This event highlights the importance of the partnerships between youth and adults,” explained Dr. Michael Martin, Executive Director of the North Carolina 4-H Development Fund. “It is an opportunity to recognize our outstanding youth who in turn are able to thank the people who helped to make their success possible.”
The annual North Carolina 4-H Scholarship and Awards Reception and Partnership Luncheon was held on Wednesday, July 21, 2010 at the Jane S. McKimmon Center on the NC State Campus in Raleigh.
