OC 4-H Alumni in the News

Once a 4-H'er, always a 4-H'er!  We're proud to share updates on some of our Orange 4-H young alumni.

Amanda Ramey, longtime 4-H horse club member who also conducted dog and sheep projects, will graduate with honors from Virginia Intermont College this coming weekend.  She will receive her degree in English Literature and Language.

Bobby Chambers, former 4-H Livestock Club President, will graduate with a degree in Engineering from Virginia Tech.  He recently competed on the university's Baja Car Team, which designs, builds and races an off-road, one-person vehicle.  Bobby served as the team's Drivetrain Team Leader, and he will begin an engineering career in Atlanta, GA, after graduation.

Congratulations to Ashleigh Ramey, former 4-H HoofMates member, who received the 2013 Emily Hilscher Memorial Scholarship from the Intercollegiate Horseshow Association.  Hilscher died in the Virginia Tech tragedy in 2007.

Kudos to these young alumni, and please continue to send us information for the blog!  We want the world to know how great our Orange County 4-H members are!
