Jordan Leaders has been a 4-H member with the Moose Landing 4-H Club for seven years. She has gone the extra mile, or should we say, the extra 120 + miles; the round-trip distance necessary to participate in 4-H from Moose Pass. Jordan was a role model for younger members demonstrating hard work and skills at using power tools. Congratulations Jordan!
Emily Warner progressively challenges herself. She began in 4-H as a junior member raising a pig in the JML program. During her 4-H career she has gone beyond raising and showing JML animals. Emily has held numerous leadership positions that led her to be elected and successfully serve as the JML Board President. We can always count on Emily to volunteer for the tasks that need to be done for the 4-H program. Emily embraces new opportunities. She represented the Kenai Peninsula District at the Community Anti-Drug Coalitions of America Conference in Washington D.C. Attending this conference provided her the opportunity to help initiate a youth leadership program at home. She also traveled to Costa Rica for the 4-H Outbound Exchange. We are proud to have Emily as part of our 4-H program!
Cristiana Moyer is an 11 year old Northwind Rider. She completed a horse project, even though she doesn't have a horse. She took consistent lessons and then showed her lesson horse in a horse show. She came back to the club and was willing to share her horse show experiences with the other members. She is a dedicated member of the Alaska Horse Contest Team, and builds her skills by competing in all of the sections of the contest, working VERY hard to do her best job. She participated in every fund raiser for that event. Cristiana went to the record book workshops, and turned in a completed record book on time. She also recently went to the District Council meeting as a youth, and volunteered her time as a youth representative for her Northwind Riders Club in the future for meetings. Cristiana is kind, responsible, and is becoming a young leader with her wonderful example of what 4-H can do for her and others.
Although Haylee Overson is only in 6th grade and new to 4-H record keeping, she turned in a FABULOUS record book! Haylee is part of the Trail Blazer Club. Haylee's 4-H project is Horse, but she also included her many community service projects and leadership events. Haylee's financial record and riding log was extremely thorough. She has set high goals for herself, problem-solved and achieved her riding goals! Congratulations and Good Job Haylee!
