Over the last 9 years I have had the pleasure of growing up in the most amazing community in the world! This community has allowed me to have had the opportunity and privilege to experience the 4-H program.
I started my 4-H years showing Bucket Calves at the Weber County Fair in 2011. I went on to win Reserve Champion Market Steer two years in a row in 2015 and 2016. I have shown cattle for 8 years in the Weber county 4-H program and have even branched out to Market Goats for my last year (2020).
In 2016, I had the privilege of competing in my first State 4-H competition on the Judging and Livestock Bowl teams. In July of 2017 I had the pleasure of being on the Utah state champion livestock bowl team. The team competed in Denver Colorado in January of 2018, where we placed 4th in the Nation.
During my 9 years in the 4-H program I have had the opportunity to mentor younger 4-H members and learn many leadership skills as an ambassador. Over the years I have learned the true meaning of the 4-H’s and what it means to pledge them to my community, local youth and myself. I have met some of the most amazing people through my 4-H experiences and gained so many life skills, that have helped me become the young man I am today.
Thank you for 9 amazing years, Weber County 4-H and Livestock Program! I’m forever grateful for the impact you have had on my life!
