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

Sheridan has volunteered in Lancaster County since 2020 when she first started announcing the Lancaster County Super Fair livestock shows. She has also helped record ribbons for the Swine show and assisted with the Elite Showmanship contest.

Sheridan was a 12-year Lancaster County 4-H’er and loves being involved with her home county’s 4-H program. She also served as a Lancaster County 4-H Livestock Intern for two years.

“My favorite experience as a 4-H volunteer has been watching the younger members that were involved in 4-H when I graduated and throughout my internship, and now each year at county fair, grow up in 4-H and become great examples of the leaders for tomorrow!” she says. “Whether it is members in Pick-A-Pig who have now made strides in the swine industry, 4-H showmen who have asked each year to pass out ribbons to their peers in the show ring ... I enjoy witnessing them continue to make their best better!” She adds, “While I no longer live in Lancaster County, coming home for the Lancaster County Fair as a volunteer is something I look forward to every year!”
