(Continued)

BATESVILLE —

Chelsea Howell, daughter of Brad and Debbie Howell, is a 2012 graduate of Franklin County High School and a member of the East Franklin Flyers 4-H Club.  Sheep, goats, scrapbooking, and floriculture are her favorite projects.  Her 4-H honors include being named 2010 Showman of Showmen, 2011 First Runner-Up on the Fair Queen Court, and Grand Champions in sheep, goats, and floriculture.  When asked about her favorite 4-H memory, she responded, “So many have been made that it’s hard to choose.  Late night water fights at the barns is at the top.  We use hoses and buckets and everyone gets involved, but overall just spending time at the fair with friends.”  Other activities that Chelsea is involved with include showing sheep and goats, soccer, tennis, and hanging out with friends and family.   Some of her other honors include 2011 and 2012 tennis MVP and Co-Captain, Soccer All-Conference, 2009 and 2011 Soccer MVP, and Champion Ram and Ewe at North American International Livestock Expo.  She has also won Junior, Intermediate, and Senior Showman at the Indiana State Fair.  When asked who inspires her, she answered, “My Grandpa Kirlin because he is the reason 4-H is such a big part of my life.  He is a hard worker and never gives up!”  Chelsea plans to attend Franklin College to major in public relations and play tennis.

Amanda Kaiser, daughter of David and Cindy Kaiser, is a member of the East Franklin Flyers 4-H Club and a 2012 Franklin County High School graduate.  Her favorite 4-H projects include basketry, swine, and foods.   When asked about her favorite 4-H memory, she replied, “I was playing with my best friend, Lainey Losekamp, and we went back to the little creek by the campers to play.  Both of our parents were looking all over for us.  But everyone would say ‘If you find one of the girls, you will be sure to find the one right next to the other.’  This is where I met my best friend!”  Amanda’s 4-H honors include Swine Junior Showmanship in 2004, Grand Champion Junior Fashion Revue in 2007, Grand Champion Consumer Clothing in 2011, and Grand Champion Foods in 2011.  Outside of 4-H, she has many other honors including National Honor Society, Academic Hall of Fame, and Highest Honor Roll.  Amanda’s hobbies include playing basketball, volleyball, and tennis, swimming, and outdoor activities.  Her mom and dad inspire her because “they have raised five beautiful kids and always put us first!”  Amanda will be attending Indiana University in the fall and majoring in health administration.
