Thirty Franklin County residents achieve 10-year 4-H member status



Jay Haas, son of Darrell and Penny Haas, is a 2012 graduate of Franklin County High School and a member of the East Franklin Flyers 4-H Club.  Collections and swine are his favorite 4-H projects.  His 4-H honors include being awarded the Farm Bureau Tenure Award and the Leising Swine Award.  He has also had his photography go to State Fair where he was awarded a Special Merit.  When asked about his favorite 4-H memory, Jay answered, “When I won Reserve Grand Champion Market Lamb.”  Aside from 4-H, he enjoys being outside, playing bass guitar, hunting, fishing, and helping his NTPA Pulling Team Feiss Motorsports.  Jay’s dad inspires him because “he has taught me to work my butt off since nothing in this life is free.”  In the future, Jay’s goal is to have his own NTPA pulling vehicle and get into high performance and racing engine building and fabrication.  Jay lives by the words of “Never give up on your dreams.”

Matthew Hartman, son of Dave and Deb Hartman, is a 2012 home school graduate and a member of the Superkids 4-H club.  His favorite project was his woodworking project from 2010 when he made a wall cabinet for his bathroom at home.  Aside from 4-H, Matthew enjoys reading and youth group sports and activities.  Les Smith has inspired him because “he has years of experience in woodworking along with other various skills.”  In the future, Matthew plans to attend college. 

Amber Henson, daughter of Steve and Pam Henson, is a 2012 graduate of First Place Academy and a member of the Oak Forest Harvesters 4-H Club.  Her favorite 4-H projects are photography, food, and consumer clothing.   Her 4-H honors include Reserve Grand Champion, Champions, State Fair entries, and numerous blue ribbons.  Amber recalls her favorite 4-H memory as “taking pictures for my photography and fixing food for my food projects.”  Aside from 4-H, she keeps herself busy with photography, reading, playing piano, guitar, and bass, and cooking and baking.  In the summer of 2011 Amber was lucky enough to have the opportunity to go to Joplin, Missouri to help with tornado relief.  Amber’s parents inspire her the most because “they always worked hard for what they wanted.  It showed me to do the same.”  In the future, Amber plans to attend Ivy Tech for general studies and phlebotomy.  She will then attend Ozark Christian College in Joplin, Missouri to study early childhood education.
