Locals inducted 4-H All StarsBy melinda williams


The Virginia chapter of 4-H All Stars has inducted four Pulaski County 4-H participants into its service-oriented honor society.

Cynthia Hurst, Katlyn Smith, Shane Williams and Cory Zander were among 118 4-H teen members, adult volunteers and Virginia Cooperative Extension staff recognized during the annual tapping ceremony. The event was held in conjunction with the 2014 State 4-H Congress at Virginia Tech.

All Stars is devoted to positive youth development, according to Chris Lichty, Pulaski County 4-H Extension agent.

Hurst has served as Pulaski County 4-H Program assistant since 1997. During her time with 4-H, she said, she is most proud of her strong presence within the school system. She works with fourth through twelfth grade students and provides leadership for many after school programs at the elementary, middle and high school levels.

Lichty said Hurst has taught a variety of subjects, including rocks and minerals, earth systems, electric energy, light and sensory awareness.
