Paige Riebsomer, daughter of Nick and Patricia Riebsomer, is a 2012 graduate of Oldenburg Academy and a member of the East Franklin Flyers 4-H Club.  Basketry, her clay works, and baking were her favorite projects that she completed while in 4-H. Paige’s favorite memory was “when my sister, her friend, and I put on a play about how to help someone who is choking.”   Her 4-H achievements include many blue ribbons, Reserve Champion, Champion, and being a 10 year member.  Aside from 4-H, Paige enjoys playing volleyball, Ultimate Frisbee, rock climbing, skydiving, reading books, hanging out with friends, shopping, working out, walking her dog, and just smiling.  Some of her other achievements include being a regional qualifier in the 4x800M, straight A’s, perfect attendance, student council, ISSMA blue ribbons, and receiving the Mary & Chester Bommer Memorial Scholarship.   Paige’s sister Kristin inspires her because “she was also a 10 year 4-H member that was very dedicated and she loved 4-H with all of her heart.”  Paige will be attending Ball State University to study dietetics.   She then hopes to work for an organic brand named Kashi.

Caleb Robinson, son of Terry and Patty Robinson, is a 2012 home school graduate and a member of the Oak Forest Harvesters 4-H Club.  Collections, photography, electric, and foods are his favorite 4-H projects.   His 4-H achievements include Grand Champion ribbons and taking projects to the Indiana State Fair.  Caleb recalls his favorite 4-H memory as “Attending 4-H Round-Up and fair week.”  Aside from 4-H, Caleb enjoys playing the bass in Praise band, reading, working at Eklunds Crazy Acres, and hanging out with friends.   He has graduated with an Honors General Education Degree, and made the Dean’s List at Ivy Tech for two semesters while he took classes there.  Caleb’s grandparents inspire him because “they are always there to support my endeavors.”  In the fall Caleb will be attending Ball State University to study psychology with an emphasis in criminal justice.
