Weston Azaert son of Aimee and Doug Azaert of Warrensburg graduated this year and will be attending St. Lawrence University in the fall to study Liberal Arts as he explores many different majors in order to give him the knowledge to choose his major confidently. Weston, a member of 4-H for 13 years, says: “I have been in 4-H for virtually as long as I can remember, starting as a Cloverbud and growing into a full-fledged member. 4-H has had such an impact on my life and has helped me to grow into the person that I am today. The best thing about 4-H is the resources and opportunities that they provide for their members. Whether you are taking advantage of 4-H’s many community service, leadership, or educational programs, 4-H always provides you with a safe and nurturing environment that will encourage you to grow into your own, and give you knowledge and experience that you will use for the rest of your life.”
