Fifteen 4-H’ers from competition county teams were in Charleston for a special recognition on the floor of the House. In conjunction with WVU Extension’s Day at the Legislature, the group accompanied by WVU Extension 4-H Agent Don Dransfield and Agriculture Agent Brian Wickline were presented a proclamation during the daily session of the House of Delegates on Friday February 13TH.
County 4-H judging, robotics teams and the State Dairy Princess were guests of Delegates Roy Cooper, Boogie Ambler, Ray Canterbury and John O’Neal. The group also had the opportunity to visit with Senator Ron Miller who spoke with the 4-H’ers about being active and growing in 4-H. State Diary Princess Laura Jane Dransfield participated in the event as well with a Dairy Promotion table display complete with cheese bites for the legislators and public to enjoy.
A highlight of the day was a gathering of 4-H’ers from across the state to conduct a 4-H council circle under the capitol rotunda during the noon hour. The group was joined by Dr. Gordan Gee, WVU President, WVU Provost Joyce McConnell, Interim Extension Director Steve Bonanno and Debbie McDonald State 4-H Director in a full length 4-H council circle complete with an LED fire, singing, signature and campfire closing. A new never been done event for the records!
Attending from Monroe County were members of the National Champion Grasslands Judging Team consisting of Josh Dransfield, Ty Wickline and Thomas Willis of Greenbrier County. National Reserve Champion Land judger, and State Dairy Princess Laura Jane Dransfield, State Champion Livestock Judging Team members Tripp Shiflet, Tristan Morgan and Zack Schumaker, State Lego Robotics Core Values Champion Boa Constructors; Sara McClure, Cade McMunigal, Bryce Sabol, Riley Sparks, Ian, Owen and Luke Jackson. Cameron Wickline represented the State Junior Champion Beef Quiz Bowl Team. Josh and Laura Jane were also representing the State Champion dairy judging team for West Virginia in 2014. Cade McMunigal, Riley Sparks and Ty Wickline were also members of multiple judging teams.
The group was treated to a Cracker Barrel lunch by the 4-H Leaders’ association before heading home to Monroe. The accompanying picture was taken on the House Floor as the group received the proclamation from the Speaker of the House, Speaker Tim Armstead.
The Monroe County 4-H program is extremely proud of the accomplishments of each of these young people for the countless hard hours of practice and preparation each put in with their volunteer coaches to gain these honors in 2014 and 2015. This group took the 4-H challenge in various ways and Made Their Best Better!
