White County 4-H Public Presentations were held this year on April 18 at 6:00 p.m. at the Supportive Living of Wabash Apartments in Carmi. Four 4-H members: Katelyn Davis, Annsley Healy, Daisy Roser, and Caitlin South gave presentations on subjects that they chose themselves. Annsley and Caitlin gave an Oral Interpretation Speech; Daisy and Katelyn gave a Formal Speech. Rachel Parish of Harrisburg judged the members.
The presenters did a great job this year. Annsley received an A rating and a Superior for her oral interpretation “Collection of Poems”. Caitlin received an A rating Best of Show, a Superior, and a State 4-H Public Presentation opportunity for her oral interpretation of “Elphaba”. Katelyn received an A rating, Best of Show, and Superior for talking about “Life Lessons I’ve Learned from Disney” on her formal speech. Daisy received an A rating and a Superior for her formal speech titled “Art”.
Quote from Jim Beggs, “What we say is important . . . for in most cases the mouth speaks what the heart is full of.” For these four young presenters, they are going to have a bright, promising future.
