Alyssa Henderson from Bashaw is the 2017 4-H Alberta Premier’s Award recipient.
Henderson is a member of the Central Lacombe 4-H Beef Club, and was chosen from among the province’s top 4-H members to receive this award during the 60th annual 4-H Selections program at Olds College. She will represent 4-H Alberta at various regional 4-H and agricultural events throughout the year.
Henderson has been a member of Central Lacombe 4-H Beef Club for seven years and her projects include sewing, photography, visual arts, robotics, veterinary science, horse, and beef (market and carcass).
“4-H is an amazing and extremely beneficial program,” she said. “I would encourage all members to take advantage of the opportunities it presents so they can have the best possible experiences and be as successful as possible.”
In addition, 14 senior 4-H delegates were named as ambassadors to promote 4-H and youth involvement in Alberta. 4-H Alberta has also selected 33 members to represent the program at major educational events and conferences throughout Canada and the U.S.
