Missouri Representative Leach to be Honored by Greene County 4-H at Member Recognition Night Sept. 28

Missouri Representative Melissa Leach (District 137, Springfield) has been selected to receive the Greene County Friend of 4-H Award for this past 4-H year.

The award will be presented to Representative Leach at 7 p.m., Friday, Sept. 28 during the 2012 4-H Member Recognition Night. The event will be held at the Doling Park Community Center in north Springfield.

“This is quite an honor to receive this award,” said Leach. “The Springfield Urban 4-H Clubs add so much to the lives of the youth and adults who participate in the Downtown Neon Club and the Beach Club at Hovey House. I want to say ‘thank you’ to 4-H for making such a great investment into the lives of city folks.”

Member Recognition Night is the annual 4-H awards night for the county. All county members of 4-H will be recognized for their accomplishments this year, “Super 4-H’ers” will be recognized, and project winners will receive medals for completed projects.

“Recognition Night is always a celebration and we wanted to take the opportunity to recognize Rep. Leach for her support of 4-H locally,” said Velynda Cameron, 4-H youth development specialist with University of Missouri Extension.
