FLORESVILLE -- Our future leaders of tomorrow were recognized for their achievements and success in the 4-H program during the 2011 4-H Achievement Night held Aug. 7. The Wilson County Show Barn, decorated in a Mardi Gras theme, was the location for this year’s event. Anna Reese, president of the Wilson County 4-H Council, served as mistress of ceremonies.
Courtney Trout, the daughter of Jeff and Rhonda Trout of Stockdale, was honored with the Golden Clover Award, the highest county achievement award.
Megan Steele received the Danforth “I Dare You” Award.
Recognized for their contributions to the 4-H Club were the Friends of 4-H -- Gerald Eckel, Jimmy Kolodziej, and Witte’s Bar-B-Que & Catering.
The Outstanding 4-H Leader award was presented to Susan Leslie.
For the complete list, see “4-H snapshot,” below left.
Also during the banquet, rosettes were awarded to the students who entered record books. Anna Reese and Dakota Kotara were honored for earning first place in state competition in 2010 -- Anna in the plants and animals open category and Dakota in swine. For this honor, the duo were invited to attend the Texas 4-H Leadership conference in Washington, D.C., which Dakota attended.
