Truffle Hunters 4-H NominationNominee

  • Emily Adams


  • Nominated by Krista Lathrop, 4-H mom

Reason for Nomination

I would like to recognize Emily for her heart. Her compassion for others. Thought fair weekend she took my son under her wing. She has an eye for seeing frustrations building and would come and shift the gears to allow tasks to be completed. She helped during morning madness, barn duties and just any time they saw each other she would check on how he was doing. Her efforts really helped pave the way for a smooth fair weekend for my son and eliminated many stresses for me. I had many tasks for fair and we were a leader down and Emily as well as her mom Susan saw the need and filled it.

Even though they are not in our group I am thankful to have such wonderful compassionate people in our 4-H family.
