Charles Maloy of Rogers County Selected for Oklahoma 4-H Hall of FameMon, 02 Aug 2010 16:47:24 CDT
Two 4-H superstars for the state of Oklahoma received the highest honor an active 4-H member can receive in Oklahoma- election into the Oklahoma 4-H Hall of Fame.
One of the two that were inducted into the Oklahoma 4-H Hall of Fame was Charles Maloy from Claremore.
Charles Maloy is a member of the Circle G 4-H Club in Rogers County and he enjoys conducting leadership workshops for 4-H members. An active 4-H'er, Charles serves on the State 4-H Council and his favorite community service project has been in assisting Operation: Military Kids. Charles says, "Whether helping at camps or handing out backpacks, helping children whose parents are deployed is rewarding and fun." Without 4-H, Charles would not have been made into the person he is today. He says, "the first step on any journey is difficult, but the reward at the end is great." Charles is the son of John and Cindy Maloy and will be attending Oklahoma State University this fall. He also will be busy as the 2010-2011 State 4-H Council President.
The 2010 State 4-H Roundup had 960 youth registered for the conference and more than 1,000 for the Honor Night Assembly. Proud parents and 4-H youth supporters attend Honor Night to cheer on their favorite project finalists and witness the State 4-H Hall of Fame awards. Youth from 69 of the 77 counties were a part of the statewide event.
They participated in a wide variety of workshops ranging from college discovery trips to leadership workshops. Many 4-H'ers this year were the actual leaders of the workshops, and many youth worked in partnership with adults to present educational programming to other Oklahoma 4-H'ers. In addition, they participated in contests, including tractor driving, speech, vocal and dress revue.
During the Roundup, a new team of state 4-H council leaders were selected. Charles Maloy, Rogers County, was elected president; Tanner Allread, Canadian County, was elected vice president; Kendra Rash, Payne County, was elected secretary; and Chris Maxcey, Pittsburg County, was elected reporter.
