Today's the day that senior 4-H'er Blake Hopkins has been waiting for. As part of the national championship 4-H youth livestock judging team, he and his teammates and coaches are leaving today for Scotland, where they will judge in The Royal Highland contest. This is an incredible achievement, and Blake is only the second Orange 4-H member to participate. (Hats off to Elizabeth Nixon who was our first!)
We wish Blake and the Virginia delegation safe travels and a successful contest. Meet as many people as you can, learn as much as you can, and have fun!
