4-H Club shapes young people for success

October 12, 2006

Albany -- Young people in Dougherty County are awarded for their work to better themselves and the community.

The annual 4-H Club awards program recognizes young people for vocal achievements, instrumental performance, and work-force preparation among other activities.

The organization develops more than 1,000 members for future leadership. Young people say they learn the importance of community through the organization.

"It's a good way to communicate with people and stuff like that, like I'm doing 'Kitchen Fun and Food for the Family.' I cook a lot, and I go around places cooking. I'm just very active with the community," said 4-H Club Member Mariah Hatcher.

Tonight's event was in honor of former club member and 4-H agent Remell Jackson, recognized for 30 years of involvement with the organization.
