4-H’er of the Month seeks to improve world around him

Cody Fortin-Wright is this month’s 4 H’er of the month. Over the last year, Cody has grown as a person. He has shown kindness and maturity when dealing with other students. He proves on a daily basis he can deal with others in a sensitive and compassionate way even dealing with highly emotional subject matter. He practices being inclusive to all students including special needs and younger members of his community.

Cody exhibits motivation to improve himself. This year he has taught himself piano and taken extra certifications for his 4-H projects. He has chosen projects that reflect his desire to improve the world around him and shown enthusiasm while participating in collecting donations for the less fortunate. Last but not least he has shown up for all the meetings with a great attitude, completely participating and desire to build his club.

4-H’ers of the Month receive a U.S. Savings Bond sponsored by Aaron and Jeannine Morse.
