Calhoun County 4-H'er Earns Sheep Project Award
AMES, Iowa -- Nicole Meyer of Calhoun County received a state 4-H sheep project award that includes a $100 savings bond from the Craig Van Arkel Memorial. Meyer, 17, is the daughter of Alan and Carol Meyer of Lytton.
During her eight years of 4-H involvement, Meyer has completed several major projects including sheep, clothing, food and nutrition, home improvement and photography. She has served her local 4-H club as vice president, reporter and historian. Meyer has served on her County 4-H Council and has received county project awards in food and nutrition, clothing and sheep.
"4-H has helped me to be more confident in talking in front of groups of people that I don't know," said Meyer. "It has also given me leadership and citizenship opportunities that I never thought I would have. I have also learned more about the many aspects of the sheep industry and this will help me when I go to college. I have gained character aspects which will add success in the ag-business area which is what I plan on going into."
Meyer is a senior at Rockwell City-Lytton High School.
