Bradley County 4-H initiates highest Honor Club Members 
  
The four H’s of 4-H are head, heart, hands, and health.  There is a fifth H, however, that most people do not recognize.  4-H Honor Club has one extra H, which stands for Honor.  
  
There are three levels of recognition in the 4-H program and the first is to be initiated into 4-H Honor Club.  The organization provides recognition, primarily within counties, of junior high and senior 4-H members who have demonstrated consistent leadership ability and have been active members in their clubs and communities. 
  
In order to be eligible to become Honor Club members, youth must be in their third year as a 4-H member, donate over 20 community service hours, serve in leadership positions in the county and/or region, and participate in 120 hours of 4-H programming.  These same youth also participate in leadership activities, compete in a number of contests, and serve as teen leaders at camps, day camps, and trainings. Youth who are initiated into Honor Club are members for the remainder of their lives. 
On Monday, 38 4-H members were initiated into the organization at a reception held at the UT/TSU Extension Office in Cleveland.

The new initiates were Cameron Achata, Ashlee Allen, Rosanna Bender, Ariana Biggs, Candice Bird, Justice Brackett, Teigan Cassada, Ben Caywood, Cameron Clark, Sky Emerton, Caedyn Freeman, Brenden Guffey, Adrian Hart, Miah Hieghtshoe, Isabelle Hoeffner, Samuel Houston, Kaylee Humphries, Alicze Janney, Jasmine Janney, Ella Johnson, Kaylee Jones, Marie Kaylor, Elizabeth Kimsey, Zarek Kotulski, Hudson Leko, Kayla Martin, Alexis McCormick, Shaily Mistry, Isaac Morgan, Emily Pendergrass, Kallie Pendergrass, Jonas Pols, Joshua Powers, Lydia Price, Alex Stevens, Cole Thompson, Davian Voyles and TJ Zachman.   
  
Twenty Honor Club initiates is the goal that Lynne Middleton, Extension agent, has set for Bradley County for each year.  
This year, “we blew past that goal for the second time in a row,” said Middleton. 
“This group of youth who we initiated have been very active, jumped right in and done service hours, and had a great time getting to know each other.  We started off with 71 potential initiates but as always, some of those were lost along the way.  Initiating 38 into the Tennessee Honor Club makes us very proud.  Last year, Bradley County was the one with the most initiates.  We will see if we are again at the end of the year!” 
  
For more information about Bradley County 4-H programs, contact Lynne Middleton at the UT/TSU Extension Office at 423-728-7001 or LMiddle2@utk.edu.  UT Extension offers its programs to all eligible persons regardless of race, color, national origin, age, disability, religion or veteran status.
