An N.C. Cooperative Extension Table with awards, trophies and certificates. On Saturday, March 4, 2023, Chatham County 4-H held their 4-H Achievement Celebration at The Chatham County Agriculture and Conference Center. This year’s theme: “4-H Grows Here” truly represents the unique and diverse programs that   4-H offers for youth and adults to grow and expand. The celebration was the first in-person awards ceremony since 2019 due to the pandemic. We were excited to have this year’s Awards Celebration in person! A self-serve deli style luncheon was provided by The Old Place Catering owned and operated by LuAnne Moore.

This year we were able to celebrate the accomplishments of four of our clubs/teams. Clover Creators, Horsekateers, Leatherworks, and the Youth Livestock Judging Team.

Each club leader was honored and recognized, for their years of service and dedication, with a plaque. Leatherworks leaders Ric Harber :1 year, Robert Bergmueller :5 years, and Linda Bergmueller: 4 years. Clover Creator leaders  Lindsay Shore-Wright: 5 years and Jazmin Mendosa-Sosa :5 years. Horsekateers leaders Mary Dickerson: 16 years, Ruthy Vorder-Bruegee: 4 years, Scott Dickerson: 16 years, Lisa Dickerson: 4 years, and Laura Dickerson: 4 years.

Award winners and accomplishments for the 2022 4-H year were phenomenal! Monetary awards were presented to youth that participated in the North Central Activity Day in Wilkes County. The 4-H participants and winners are members of the 4-H Chatham County Clover Creators, with one Member At Large winner. For their efforts, members received monetary awards ranging from $50-$100.

Points of Success was used again this year for members to be recognized for their work in 4-H. Points ranged from 190 to 2150! Members received pins, medals, trophies, certificates and “clover bucks”, ranging from $10 to $30, in which they can redeem for 4-H registrations and activity fees associated with Chatham County 4-H programs.

Project Record Books/Portfolios county winners received ribbons for their efforts. Their books were sent to the state where they will be judged along with other NC 4-H member PRB and portfolio entries.

Also recognized were our 4-H graduating and aged out members Samantha Durham, Caleigh Gantt, Santos Vazquez Quiquivix , Lilly Webster, Jaydn Clark, and Hannah Williams.

We were honored to have our North Central District Teen Advisors and  Meredith Kreeger and Sarah Maddry  along with Alex Pope, our District Vice-President and Emily Gobble, our District Secretary/Treasurer join us. In addition, Arleth Chavez-Juarez served as a translator to our Spanish speaking families.

The celebration ended with each member receiving a 4-H Chatham County water bottle as a gift.
