Oklahoma County 4-H Volunteer Leaders Win Prestigious HonorsThu, 22 Aug 2013 09:46:18 CDT
Oklahoma County 4-H recently honered two club volunteers. Angela Hudson was chosen as the Oklahoma County and the Southwest District "Volunteer of the Year" and Carey Pribil was selected as the Oklahoma County "Lifetime Volunteer of the Year".
Angela Hudson has been the Harrah 4-H Club volunteer leader for the past six years. Hudson serves in many leadership positions, providing a positive role model for youth as well as their families. She is on the Oklahoma County Extension 4-H Program Advisory Council and is currently the Oklahoma County 4-H Council President.
"It has been my desire to assist youth through the 4-H model. I try to portray the qualities that we want all of our youth to exhibit as citizens in their community by teaching them the life skills that I have learned as a parent, citizen and a 4-H volunteer leader," Hudson explained.
For the past 13 years, 4-H volunteer leader Carey Pribil has been donating her time and experience in helping youth learn the values and life skills through the shooting sports program. Pribil currently serves as a certified volunteer for the Oklahoma County 4-H Shooting Sports Program.
Pribil's 4-H involvement started when her twin boys joined 4-H and had interests in shooting sports. This developed into a family activity they all enjoyed. Even though her sons are now college graduates, Pribil continues to volunteer her time to help other youth embrace the values and spirit of the 4-H program through shooting sports.
"4-H relies on the dedication and leadership from volunteers like Hudson and Pribil to reach youth at their project interest. Without volunteers like them, our program would cease to have an impact throughout our urban county," said Kyle Worthington, 4-H Youth Educator for Oklahoma County.
