4-H Volunteer leaders include those persons who are non-salaried and involved in 4-H program development, delivery, or support at the community, county, district, or state level. 4-H opportunities would not exist without our volunteers who inspire youth to engage in hands-on-learning and development.

Thank you to WNC Bridge Foundation who made it possible for SIX Henderson County 4-H volunteers to attend the State 4-H Volunteer Leaders Conference!

Volunteer Leaders

Henderson County 4-H program is blessed with special individuals who give time to the program. FIVE volunteers from Henderson County were recognized for their contributions at the 2023 State 4-H Volunteer Leaders Conference!

4-H West District Award Recognition – Jerome Wilkie was first a 4-H parent, quickly adjusting to a 4-H shooting sports coach. Five years later, Jerome is still an enthusiastic and dedicated 4-H volunteer Target Shooting Sports coach dedicating countless hours to the training of 4-H’ers in pistol and archery. Jerome has also assisted in planning and the execution of 4-H fundraising events, serves on the District shooting sports advisory council, and serves as a range safety officer at the District Shooting Sports Tournament. Always instilling the importance of safety and discipline, Jerome also creates a safe and fun environment that youth who participate in 4-H Target Shooting thrive in.

4-H West District Award Recognition Brandon Perry is a fun, engaging and “go-getting” type of 4-H Club volunteer. Raising agricultural awareness has always been a priority of Brandon’s, which shows through the amount of volunteer work she does with the Barnyard Bandits 4-H Club and 4-H embryology school enrichment program. She is committed to developing 4-H’ers in their knowledge of poultry through membership, welcoming all youth who would like to participate.

State 4-H Volunteer Award  As the leader of the Young Naturalists 4-H Club for 22 years, Ranae Worrell has nurtured and coached young people who have won numerous awards in the Wildlife Habitat Evaluation Program at the state and national levels. Ranae has helped many 4-H club members develop skills in kindness, having fun, hard work, supporting each other, and serving the community, as well as learning about nature and how to care for our environment. Her service oriented heart not only extends to “her 4-H kiddos” but fellow 4-H volunteers who ask for advice and workshops. Ranae is a pleasure and Henderson County 4-H is thankful for her service.

Dr. Kim Ingold Hands To Larger Service Award Tony, Jennifer, Lindsey, and Jacob Bryant are the definition of “hands to larger service.” The family first joined a 4-H Club when Jacob and Lindsey were small children. They have since both graduated high school but the whole family continues to serve the 4-H program by volunteering to teach cooking classes, presentation workshops, serve on the Advisory Council, secure corporate sponsorships, prepare meals for 4-H events, and orchestrate an annual fundraiser for 4-H Clubs. The Bryant family are humble and quick to fill county needs and put their hands to larger service.

Dr. Thearon McKinney Outstanding Volunteer of the Year Chip Worrell has been a 4-H parent, leader, and shooting sports coach for seventeen years. He has been instrumental in building the Target Shooting program in Henderson County, as well as on District, State, and National levels. Chip has a passion for seeing youth succeed, devoting countless hours and resources to furthering youths 4-H careers in shooting sports even to the National level. He also encourages youth in presentations and/or project records, community service projects, and being an active 4-H member on County levels. 4-H’ers describe him as a patient and kind coach. Henderson County is very grateful for his volunteerism and the impacts he has made on 4-H’ers lives.
