Johnson Advances to State Contest
From Comanche County 4-H
Recordkeeping is a valuable skill taught to members of the Texas 4-H program. Members are encouraged to keep project records and have these records reviewed annually by submitting a Texas 4-H Record Book. Keeping records is an important aspect of business as well as personal life. In order for a 4-H member to be considered for the highest level awards in the 4-H program, the Gold, Silver, and Bronze Stars, a Record Book must be submitted.
This year there were two county youth that submitted a Record Book at the District level. Sadie Berry of DeLeon 4-H submitted her record book in the Natural Resources category. Sadie has spent the past year as a Texas 4-H Water Ambassador. As an Ambassador, Sadie has learned about many aspects of water in Texas. It has also provided her with excellent leadership and community service opportunities. Sadie also completed projects such as goat, beef cattle, food and nutrition, leadership, and community service. Sadie received 4th place with her Natural Resources record book at the District 8 competition. Allyson Johnson of DeLeon 4-H submitted her Record Book for District competition in the Goat category. Allyson is a member of the American Boer Goat Association and has begun her own herd of show goats in DeLeon. She recently purchased another goat with her San Antonio Stock Show Scramble Certificate. Allyson has been heavily involved in 4-H for the past eight years and plans to continue through her high school career. Her other projects include shooting sports, food and nutrition, leadership, photography, leadership community service, citizenship, dog care and training, veterinary science, and sheep. Allyson’s record book did more than enough to impress the judges at the District 8 competition and earned her a coveted spot at the Texas State Record Book contest to be held on August 9th.
