Lancaster County 4-H is proud to announce Jamie Wood of Waverly as winner of the November “Heart of 4-H Award” in recognition of outstanding volunteer service.

Jamie has volunteered about 15 years as a superintendent of the 4-H Food & Nutrition areas at the Lancaster County Super Fair. She first volunteered with her mother at the fair because her mother is a long-time friend of Barb Suing, the lead superintendent of the food areas. Helping at fair became an annual mother-daughter experience for them, and eventually, Jamie became a superintendent. This year, Jamie’s son helped at the fair, so the “family affair” continues into the next generation. Jamie has also helped at 4-H Council’s food stand at county fair.

“I like being a 4-H volunteer because I enjoy seeing how excited kids get when talking about their projects,” Jamie says. “I’ve seen a lot of youth grow up over the years and have enjoyed getting to know them.”

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