-Press Release, Granville County Government
A delegation of Granville County 4-H members attended North Carolina 4-H Congress, which was held virtually this year. This year’s 4-H Congress, held July 20 through July 23, attracted more than 300 youth and adults representing 4-H programs across the state.
Conference delegates participated in general sessions, learned together in workshops, recognized award winners and elected State 4-H Officers for the upcoming year.
Samuel Dickerson, age 16, represented Granville County and was inducted into the 4-H Honor Club, one of the highest honors a 4-H’er can achieve. New Honor Club members were tapped during a candlelight ceremony held Monday night, July 20.
Membership in the Honor Club is based on service to the 4-H program, leadership, moral standards, 4-H activities and project achievement. Less than one-half of one percent of North Carolina 4-H’ers are selected for membership each year. Members must be at least 16 years old and have a minimum of three years of 4-H experience.
Dickerson is a senior at Cornerstone of Freedom Academy and a member of S.H.O.W 4-H Club. The son of Paul and Terese Dickerson of Oxford, he has been active in the 4-H program for 9 years.
4-H is North Carolina’s largest youth development organization, equipping more than 262,200 young people each year with the skills to succeed and improve the world around them. 4-H programs and camps encourage young people to “learn by doing,” helping them to develop into active, contributing citizens. NC State Extension and the Cooperative Extension Program at N.C. A&T State University coordinate 4-H programs statewide.
