Tehama County 4-H
Making a Difference
4-H Announces 1st Outstanding Service Award Recipient4-H member’s all across California have used their Head, Heart, Hands, and Health to create and implement community service learning projects that make real and positive changes in their communities. Youth increase their confidence, learn to make decisions, learn to work as a team, and realize that they can make a difference in their community, which is why the Tehama County 4-H Outstanding Service Award was introduced in 2015. Our first ever award goes to Makaylie Cook of Westside 4-H Club for her dedication to the community. Makaylie actively helps her community chairing her bi-annual clothing drive, canned food drives, donating to Adopt an Angel, chairing an Easter Egg Hunt for the elderly, as well as assisting other organizations such as Salvation Army, American Legion and the Kelly Griggs Museum with events. As the recipient, Makaylie’s name will be listed on a perpetual plaque displayed at the Tehama County 4-H Office and Makaylie will receive an individual award at Awards Night in December. This award is fully sponsored by past Tehama County 4-H Volunteer. Congratulations Makaylie for positively impacting your community and being a positive role model in and out of 4-H!
