Ron and Carrie Anderson recognized as Friends of 4-H
Hours that Ron and Carrie Anderson have committed to serving the Phillips County 4-H program are countless, and their immeasurable impact is what led to their being named 2018 Friends of 4-H.
The two were recognized Oct. 7 at the annual Phillips County 4-H achievement program at Haxtun Community Center. Members were also honored for their achievements, representing the five county 4-H clubs: Paoli Hustlers, Challengers, Raising Ranchers, Better Beef Makers and Holyoke Centennial.
Among the many members, it was noted that most have gone to at least one of the Andersons for help with something in their 4-H careers. Ron and Carrie have served as head club leaders, rabbit leaders and shooting-sports leaders. As Brooklyn Plumb, who emceed the program, said, “4-H has been near and dear to these individuals, and it is because of their dedication and commitment to 4-H that they have been selected as the 2018 Phillips County Friends of 4-H.”
In other special awards presented Oct. 7, Isaac Strauss was honored with the “I Dare You” leadership award. The award recognizes those who, with a little encouragement, are ready to see themselves as leaders — young adults who are ready to take the dare. Strauss received a copy of William H. Danforth’s book, “I Dare You,” sponsored by Rick and Kathy Haynes.
