4-H Member of the Month

Henry County 4-Her of the Month: Jared Wisniewski

Jared Wisniewski is a member of the CCA Patriots 4-H Club, where he holds the office of Recreation Leader.  Being an officer is fun.  He enjoys coming up with fun games to play at the 4-H Club meetings.  He is the son of Greg & Rosalyn Wisniewski and attends 6th grade at Clinton Christian Academy.  Jared joined 4-H because his Mom was in 4-H when she was young, and there was a club at school and it looked like fun.
Jared thinks 4-H is a fun and awesome program that can teach you many life lessons and basically anything you want.  He was enrolled in 4-H Shooting Sports and the Woodworking project this year.  He enjoyed both projects and liked showing his 4-H projects at the Henry County fair.
The most important thing Jared has learned through 4-H is responsibility to complete his projects and to help others in his club and community.  He likes the 4-H Carnival each Spring where you play games, and he helps run the booths. Jared likes to have fun helping others.
Jared’s future plans with 4-H are to try other projects and be a different club officer.  4-H can teach you so many things.  He thinks it might also be fun to go on 4-H trips.  Jared has learned 4-H will help him be involved in the community and be a leader.  It will also help him learn to speak in front of others.  He will also use the skills he learns in his projects, such as woodworking, so he can make things and learn about different tools.  He feels 4-H is amazing and his club has a lot of fun.
Jared’s 4-H Club Leader says, “ Jared was chosen to represent their club as the 4-H’er of the month because of his involvement on several levels.  On the club level, he is an officer in our club and does a good job working with the younger members.  On the county level, he has participated in Presentation Day and exhibited his projects at the county fair.  On a state level, his woodworking project was on display at the Missouri State Fair this year.  Last year, he also participated in the State Shoot at Prairie Grove for 4-H Shooting Sports and will do it again this September.  Jared enjoys helping people, is never afraid to learn or try new things, and is a fun kid to have in our club.  It will be fun to see the new experiences he has in the future.”
