Puente, Welfel among honorees

FLORESVILLE -- As new faces joined the Wilson County AgriLife Extension staff during the annual Wilson County 4-H Achievement Night held Aug. 11, graduating seniors said goodbye to an organization that some had been involved with for years. This year, the event was held in the Floresville Event Center.

Kimberly Lanier, Kelli Kolodziej, Colby Shodrock, Liesel Raabe, Jessica Willey, and Jennifer Kruse are among the seniors who were awarded scholarships.

Kudos were given, as well. Jessica Puente was honored with the Golden Clover Award, the highest county 4-H achievement.

Adlai Welfel received the Danforth “I Dare You” Award.

Recognized for their contributions to the 4-H Club were the Friends of the 4-H -- Ben E. Keith Co., Bill Feick, and Jimmy McFadin.
