Montgomery County 4-H'er Earns Citizenship Project Award

9/27/2005

AMES, Iowa -- Krista Frazee of Montgomery County received a state 4-H citizenship project award that includes a $100 savings bond from the Mary Jo and Glen Mente Endowment. Frazee, 17, is the daughter of Will and Deb Frazee of Emerson.

 

During her nine years of 4-H involvement, Frazee has completed several major projects including citizenship, leadership, beef, sheep and horse.  She has served her local 4-H club as president, vice president, secretary and historian. Frazee has attended the Iowa 4-H Youth Conference/Animal Science Roundup in Ames, Iowa, and the Citizenship Washington Focus trip to Washington D.C. She has served on her County and Area 4-H Councils and her County Youth Committee. Frazee has received county awards in beef, sheep and horse and has also participated in Danforth and Ak Sar Ben.

 

"4-H has helped me explore the many realms of everyday life and how little things can change everything," said Frazee. 4-H gave me a great head start into FFA.  My beef, sheep and horse projects as well as the citizenship and leadership aspects of 4-H prepared me for the future.  Nothing is better than 4-H."

 

Frazee is a senior at Red Oak High School.
