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

She has gone above and beyond her duties as FFA advisor of Raymond Central to help with 4-H/FFA events and activities.

She has volunteered with 4-H over 13 years — since aging out of 4-H. Whitney helps in the showring during the 4-H/FFA Beef Show at the Lancaster County Super Fair. She helps in numerous counties coaching Livestock Judging teams, helping with livestock shows, judging herdsmanship, judging static exhibits and more.

“I enjoyed 4-H when I was growing up,” she says. “This gives me a chance to give back and help others with what I learned in 4-H. My favorite experience as a 4-H volunteer is being in the showring helping the youth and coaching teams. Livestock (beef cattle specifically) is my background and it is always a great day seeing everyone excited for show day to see all their hard work. My 4-H and FFA experiences are a major reason why I became an agriculture teacher and FFA advisor.”

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