(Continued)

BATESVILLE —

Haylee Cooper, daughter of Scott and Sharon Cooper, is a 2012 graduate of Union County High School and an independent study 4-H member.  Beef cattle, photography, and arts and crafts serve as her favorite 4-H projects.  Her 4-H honors include having the Champion Angus Heifer for 9 years, being Champion Showman, Champion Arts & Crafts, Most Active Beef Member, being an Indiana Junior Angus officer for 3 years, and winning the Leising Award in the beef department.   Haylee recalls her favorite 4-H memory as “When I was a 3 year member I won Champion Senior Beef Showman at the county fair.  This was a very big accomplishment for me, especially for my age.”  Aside from 4-H, she plays travel softball all year around on Cincy Star ’94, shows cattle all year around, she’s an active member of the local FFA Chapter, and  does various activities with the school and community.   Haylee has received many awards outside of 4-H including playing Varsity softball for 4 years, being an FFA officer for 4 years, getting awarded Most Outstanding Player 2 years in a row, winning the Golden Glove Award for 3 years, achieving Academic Honors, and being a member of the National Honor Society.  Haylee’s parents and grandparents inspire her because “they have always been there for me throughout my life and were always the ones who pushed me to do better.”  In the future, Haylee plans to attend Wilmington College and major in either physical therapy or nursing.  While she is there she will also be playing on the softball team.

Zachary Frank, son of Todd and Sharon Frank, is a 2012 graduate of Franklin County High School and a member of the Blooming Grove Tigers 4-H Club.  His favorite project is home environment.  His biggest achievements in 4-H were winning Grand Champion in the foods project and winning 2 Grand Champions in the home environment project.  He enjoys playing sports and hanging out with his friends whenever he can.  When asked who inspires him most, he answered, “My Grandpa Clemens.”  Zachary plans to attend Indiana State University to study criminal justice.
