Lancaster County 4-H is proud to announce Clayton Haman of Denton as winner of the March “Heart of 4-H Award” in recognition of outstanding volunteer service.

For about 15 years, Clayton has helped provide fertile chicken eggs for the Lancaster County Embryology 4-H school enrichment program. Third grade students hatch chicks in classrooms as they learn about the development of embryos. 4-H EGG Cam allows viewers around the world to witness the amazing process of chicks hatching. After the chicks hatch and spend about 5 days in classrooms or on EGG Cam, Clayton then provides a home for some of them. He once provided turkey eggs to hatch on 4-H EGG Cam!

“I like helping young people enjoy experiences they would otherwise never have had the opportunity to have. This is my way of paying back to the 4-H program that helped me grow as a person. My favorite experience as a 4-H volunteer was having eggs on the EGG cam and my son’s ag class in Mullen watched the chickens hatch.”

Lancaster County 4-H thanks Clayton for donating his time and talents. People like him are indeed the heart of 4-H!
