4-H’er of the Month – Carter Higginbotham

Carter Higginbotham is a member of the Sunshine Crew 4-H Club. He has been in 4-H for 5 years and in that time has shown animals at the Northeast Florida Fair, the Greater Jacksonville Fair, and the Clay County Fair. Carter has helped many of the members of his club with catching, halter breaking, feeding, and clipping of their animals. He teaches them by sharing his knowledge of safety, caring, and showing of their animals. He has many times helped to pick up all the club animals and unload them at the fair while others were in school. And he never complains about doing the extra work! He is always willing to help.

Great job, Carter, and thank you for being an outstanding 4-H member!
