Hillsboro youth named 4-H State Diplomat
Hannah Kate Bradshaw of Hillsboro was inducted as a 4-H State Diplomat during the annual 4-H Senior Leadership Retreat Jan. 17, in Albuquerque.
The daughter of Mary and Ike Wilton, she is a senior at Hot Spring High School. She has been a 4-H member for eight years and has participated in public speaking and showing horses in the pleasure classes.
Outside of 4-H she participates in National Honor Society, FFA, Juniorettes Club and Hot Springs Horse Club.
She joins Wil Hodnett of Portales, Shane Bramblett of Grenville and Ellen Bardwell of Edgewood as the 2009 state diplomats.
"I want to be a leader in a team that represents 4-H statewide. I want to travel and meet new people and attend all the leadership activities that I can," Bradshaw said of why she wanted to be on the diplomat team.
The senior 4-H members will share the diplomat responsibilities, which include assisting with the parade and tours at the New Mexico State Fair, planning and conducting the Senior Leadership Retreat in conjunction with the 4-H State Ambassadors, and assisting with the 4-H State Conference. They will also attend a 4-H youth camp in Arizona.
