Damascus Middle School 4-H Members Participate at District Level

Throughout the year, students at Damascus Middle School have the opportunity to attend 4-H club meetings during their morning exploratory class time.  In addition to the regular club meetings, members may choose to develop public speaking, dramatic reading, and performance skills through their participation in project areas.  Six DMS club members were eligible to participate in the District-wide Activity Day held on April 20 at the Southwest Virginia Higher Education Center, and five of these students were named District Champions!  Angelina A. participated in the Dramatic Reading category, Claire H. is District Champion in the Share the Fun category, Noah S. is District Champion in the Career Presentation category, Amanda S. is District Champion in the Handicrafts Presentation category, and Mia T. is District Champion in the Small Animals Presentation category.  Eighth-grader Brady B. is District Champion in the Natural Resources & Environment Education Presentation category, and since he is in the Senior Age Division, he will advance to the State 4-H Congress this summer at Virginia Tech.  Congratulations to each of these students!
