Owensboro Community & Technical College’s Kara McFayden is an active student, and she has been selected as one of 20 finalists that have interviewed for the prestigious 4-H Emerald Award.
“The Emerald Award is the highest honor in Kentucky 4-H’s Achievement Program,” according to Lindsey Dunn, Daviess County’s Agent for 4-H Youth Development Education. “Each year, four dedicated Kentucky 4-H members are selected for this honor through a rigorous application and interview process.”
The 4-H Achievement Program is open to anyone for the competitive levels of Bronze, Silver, Gold and Emerald awards. Participants at each level are judged based on their accomplishments across five categories: leadership, citizenship, communications/marketing, community service, and participation.
“The top applicants making it to the Gold and Emerald levels have proven to be engaged, well rounded 4-H members not only in their local communities but at the district and state levels as well,” Dunn said.
McFayden is slated to serve as President of the Student Government Association for 2020-21.
