4-H winding down are classroom programs

Posted on Sunday, April 7, 2013 at 10:00 am

We are winding down with 4-H Clubs in the classroom. In the month of March we had 4-H Demonstrations and Project Boards. Middle school 8th graders just completed their Work Force Project for the year. Throughout the year they researched jobs, wrote resumes and did a face-to-face interview.

On My Own is a great project for the 7th graders. They have done a personality test to determine what job is right for them. They are family oriented; therefore they are doing the scenarios as a real family. They have a job, bills, house, car, car insurance, groceries to purchase weekly and by the end of the month they see if their “wants” are more expensive than their “needs.”

Congratulations to our Moore County 4-H Horse Judging Team. The team traveled to Murfreesboro to compete in the MTSU 2013 Regional Horse Judging on March 22. Our young group ranked eighth in team halter judging and 11th in overall team competition.

Coach Jennifer Deal said, “I am very proud of the effort shown by the team, and by the results of their first competition.”

Making up the junior team are Andrew and Laney Cashion and Meghan Dodd.
