JAMESTOWN, NEW YORK (May 15, 2017) – Cornell Cooperative Extension of Chautauqua County’s 4-H Youth Development Program connects youth to hands-on learning opportunities that help them grow into competent, caring, contributing members of society. In an effort to recognize the great things that 4-H youth accomplish, each month Cornell Cooperative Extension Chautauqua County will name a 4-H SuperYouth. The May SuperYouth is Sara Holthouse.
Sara has been in 4-H for ten years and is a member of the Clymer Eager Beavers 4-H Club. She enjoys the knitting, cake decorating, story writing, and sewing projects.
Sara is very active in the Dairy project and has served as a junior superintendent in the Dairy barn since 2015. She received the Reserve Grand Champion Milking Shorthorn in the open show at the Chautauqua County Fair in 2014 and received the Reserve Grand Champion Lineback in the 4-H and Open Show at the Chautauqua County Fair in 2016.
A senior at Clymer Central School Sara has participated on the Clymer/Sherman bowling team since 2013 and went to sectionals in 2016. She is a member of FFA where she served as historian in the 2016-2017 school year and she will receive her Empire Degree this year. At Districts she qualified for sub-states in extemporaneous speaking. Sara was also a part of the first place FFA Dairy Judging Team at the Chautauqua County Fair and the sixth place FFA Dairy Judging team at the New York State Fair. Sara is a member of the National Honor Society where she is currently serving as historian.
Outside of 4-H Sara loves to write fiction novels. She is heading to Allegheny College in the fall and is double-majoring in creative writing and environmental science. Sara’s quiet confidence and passion for all that she commits to, make her a 4-H SuperYouth. Congratulations. Sara!
