4-H Salute to Excellence 2019 Volunteer Recognition
The National 4-H Salute to Excellence Volunteer Recognition Award recognizes 4-H volunteers who demonstrate exemplary service to 4H while promoting service through volunteerism as both an opportunity and a privilege. This year we had two wonderful volunteers nominated for consideration for the Outstanding Lifetime Volunteer Award - Deborah Sweeneyfrom Niagara County and Raymond Vailfrom Dutchess County. Both applications highlighted their many contributions to local and state 4-H programs, making the selection process particularly challenging!
We’re excited to announce that Deborah Sweeney has been selected as the NYS 4-H Outstanding Lifetime Volunteer! Deborah’s application has been forwarded on to National 4-H Council for regional and national consideration.
Thank you to the Niagara and Dutchess nomination teams for sharing Debi and Raymond’s impact through this Salute to Excellence process! Thank you to both Raymond and Debi for their contributions to 4-H!
