4-H'ers Recognized at Achievement Night

Forsyth County 4-H’ers were recognized at their annual Achievement Night on Tuesday, February 8th with the 4-H Achievement Medal. Forsyth County began the program in 2007 and since that time, two 4-H’ers have worked their way up through the levels every year and have been awarded the Achievement Medal this year. They are Seth Barrick (17) and Nathan Barrick (16) sons of Michael and Melinda Barrick of Winston-Salem.

4-H’ers earning the Gold medal were:

  • Laura Hutchins, David Allen Pledger

Silver medalists included:

  • Hope Arrowood, BJ Hutchins, Brandon Joyce, Brandon Phagan, Brian Phagan and Allison Wise

The Bronze medal was given to:

  • Reaiah Byers, Melanie Crews, Hosanna Gourley, Josiah Gourley, Joseph Harker, Lindsey Hooker, Sidney Hooker, Justyn Joyce, Bailee Phagan and Grant Wise

Green level recipients were:

  • Alex Arrowood, Austyn Joyce, Isaiah Mitchell, Andrew Pledger, Styles Shippy, David Winemiller and Austin Wise.

Youth ages 5-8 years old can receive the Cloverbud award and those recipients were:

  • Luke Arrowood, Stephen Pledger, Evan Crews, Lily Rose Gourley and Brynna Phagan.

The 4-H Achievement Plan helps young people learn how to set goals, make plans to reach them, enrich their 4-H program experience, allows them to evaluate their own efforts and accomplishments and allows them to grow and develop their skills and personality. To be successful, 4-H’ers must be loyal to their 4-H club, county, state, nation, and world.
