Hamilton County 4-H'er Earns Sheep Project Award
AMES, Iowa -- Charlie Hild of Hamilton County received a state 4-H sheep project award that includes a $100 savings bond from the Mary Jo and Glen Mente Endowment. Hild, 18, is the son of Mark and Nancy Hild of Webster City.
During his nine years of 4-H involvement, Hild has completed several major projects including sheep, poultry, beef, swine and photography. He has served his local 4-H club as president, vice president and assistant club treasurer. Hild has served on his County 4-H Council and has received five project awards in his county. He has also been included in the Chicago and Intermediate Award trips and has been a junior project leader in poultry and the bottle lamb projects for three years. Hild is a member of the Northern Plains Club Lamb Association.
"4-H has definitely made me a harder worker and a better person all around," said Hild. "4-H has also piqued my interest in agriculture and livestock. "My future plans are to attend Iowa State University and major in Animal Science and Pre-Vet."
Hild is a senior at Webster City High School.
