Pitt County 4-H Delegate Inducted Into Honor Club & Earns National 4-H Trip
It has been another exciting and rewarding year for 4-H’ers here in Pitt County! This year several Pitt County 4-H’ers received honors during the recent State 4-H Congress. This year’s 4-H Congress, held in Raleigh July 16-19, attracted more than 540 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.
Cassandra Suedbeck, 18, daughter of John and Dorothy Suedbeck of Greenville, was 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 16.
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.
Suedbeck is graduate of Green Acres Academy and first year student at Pitt Community College. She has been an active member of East Carolina 4-H Club for nine year and currently holds the position of Vice President for the Pitt County 4-H Youth Council.
Suedbeck was also state winner in the ARIE competition. ARIE — Application, Resume, Interview and Essay competition — is a four-step process by which youth are chosen to attend national 4-H events including National Congress, National Conference and International Leadership Conference. Suedbeck will attend 4-H National Congress.
