“I’m hon­ored to re­ceive this recog­ni­tion. From my be­gin­nings as a 4-H mem­ber in Chester­town and con­tin­ued work with the or­ga­ni­za­tion, I’ve ex­pe­ri­enced first­hand the power of young peo­ple to be­come leaders and change their com­mu­ni­ties”, said Bram­ble. “4-H built im­por­tant foun­da­tions that shaped who I am to­day and I’m thrilled for the op­por­tu­nity to pay it for­ward.”
