— Written By and last updated by 4-H Honor Club members

Pasquotank County 4-H’ers received honors during their recent trip to State 4-H Congress. This year’s 4-H Congress, held in Raleigh July 29th – August 1st, attracted more than 500 young people and their adult leaders for activities including presentations on a variety of subjects, leadership and citizenship training, service opportunities, officer elections and more.

Madisyn Boyce 17, daughter of Robert and Paula Kaye Boyce of Newland, Lance Sharber, 17, son of Larry and Cindy Sharber of Newland, and Lauren Winslow 16, daughter of Sheila Winslow of Elizabeth City, were inducted into the 4-H Honor Club, one of the highest honors a 4-H’er can achieve. New Honor Club members were tapped during a candlelight ceremony Saturday night, July 29.

Membership in the Honor Club is based on service to the 4-H program, leadership, moral standards, 4-H activities and project achievement. Less than one-half of 1 percent of North Carolina 4-H’ers are selected for membership each year. Members must be at least 16 years old and have a minimum of three years 4-H experience.
