AMES, Iowa – Danielle Dohlman of Franklin County received a state 4-H horticulture project award that includes a $100 savings bond from the Mary Jo and Glen Mente Endowment and the Iowa 4-H Foundation. Dohlman, 17, is the daughter of Roger and Jackie Dohlman of Hampton.

 

During her eight years in 4-H, Dohlman has completed several major projects including horticulture, sheep, food and nutrition, clothing and home improvement. She has received senior project awards at the county level in all of those areas. She also has been the president, vice president, treasurer, secretary and historian of her 4-H club. In addition, Dohlman has served on her county 4-H council.

 

“Being in 4-H has helped me become a better leader, speaker and goal-oriented person,” said Dohlman. “Having these traits will help me throughout the rest of my life.”

 

Dohlman is a senior at Hampton-Dumont High School.
