Van Zandt County 4-H members may not be participating in this year’s Olympics in Rio but they certainly did bring home the gold.

Members and volunteer leaders were recently recognized for their achievements for the 2015-2016 4-H year.

The evening began with a catered meal and power point that reflected upon all the 4-H members in the county and their many adventures with their projects and achievements.

The recognition ceremony began by recognizing the scholarship winners who earned local Van Zandt County 4-H Scholarships.

Thanks to the Van Zandt Extension Education Association an additional scholarship in the amount of $500 was added this year. This year’s honors went to seniors Colton Caughron and Sabrina Swinford.
