Gilchrist’s Outstanding 4-H members

The 4-H Outstanding Members for each age division are recognized each year at the August banquet. This year, the 4-H banquet was cancelled due to COVID-19. We would like to showcase the members who are being recognized for their 4-H accomplishments by giving you an excerpt of their 4-H involvement.
Linden Teague won the Junior Outstanding member for 2019-2020. Linden is an active member of 4-H and has been a member of the Buckaroos Club and the County Council. She is a member of the livestock judging team and the farm judging team. She has participated in 4-H embryology, poultry projects, sewing projects, creative life skills entries, baking, summer camps, heifer projects and feeder steer projects while in 4-H. She is a fierce competitor in the showmanship ring and is happy to lend a hand to those around her.
