SAN ANGELO – Top 4-H adult leaders were honored recently during the District 7 4-H Silver Clover Recognition Banquet at Zentner’s Daughter Steak House in San Angelo.
The annual Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service event celebrated its 49th year by recognizing 27 volunteers who are vital to the success of the agency’s 23-county West Central District 4-H youth programs, said Garry Branham, AgriLife Extension 4-H specialist at San Angelo.
“Outstanding volunteers are the foundation for the continued success of our entire 4-H program,” Branham said. “Their gifts of time, dedication and commitment are what make 4-H members successful across the many project areas 4-H offers.”
The honoree from Lampasas County was Angie Andrews.

Branham said the 4-H Youth Development Program, AgriLife Extension’s youth component, offers a host of projects, activities and events designed to support and enhance volunteer participation and adult involvement in young people’s lives.
“This banquet is our way of demonstrating to these leaders who are so important to our success, the appreciation they so justly deserve,” Branham said.
Branham said honorees are nominated from counties in the district. Finalists are then chosen by a committee comprised of AgriLife Extension personnel.
