District Activity Day was a Success

We are so proud of the Haywood County 4-Hers who took the time and put forth the effort to do a presentation or perform at this year's West District Activity Day in Brevard. Congratulations to Jesse Evans, Mark Kirkpatrick, Steven Kirkpatrick, Sally Dixon, Patty Popular and Greg Popular. These 4-Hers prepared a presentation, practiced and then presented in front of a panel of judges on topics they chose from science and technology to public speaking to health and fitness.

Haywood County would also like to congratulate Kyle, Keegan and Connor Lucky-Smith on a great performance of John Henry during the Talent Show Competition. Out of 15 different participants, the Lucky-Smith boys were one of only two groups who were asked to perform again during the awards ceremony for everyone.

At the end of the day these 4-Hers represented Haywood County well bringing home 4 gold medals and 1 bronze in various presentation categories.

Being able to present oneself in front of others teaches a variety of Life Skills from organization to interviewing for a job to building confidence and leadership and many more.
