Two locals attend state 4-H roundup

CHEROKEE COUNTY — The 2014 Texas 4-H State Roundup was held at A&M University in College Station June 9th - 13th. It was  a huge success! With another record setting crowd.  The week was filled with competitions, workshops, assemblies, and a dance. The week ended with a concert by Country artist, Wade Bowen.  Each of the competitors first had to win their county and district contests to advance to the state level.  It takes a lot of hard work, and is a great honor to attend.  Many congratulations go to the participants who live out the 4-H motto, "To Make the Best Better" in constantly working to improve their skills and never stop researching to learn more about their topic. A big "thank you" also goes to the parents and the Extension Agents who help these youth achieve their goals and cheer them on to the next level.

Cherokee County was well represented by two fine young men at the Texas State Roundup. Jamie Henderson and David Wingard, both Seniors with Lookout 4-H Club,
