Nicole Lowe of Dysart was one of eighteen Iowa 4-H’ers selected to represent Iowa as a delegate at the 2015 National 4-H Congress held in Atlanta, Georgia. The theme for this 94th year of National 4-H Congress was “Excite, Spark, Ignite.”
“This is one of the highest recognition opportunities for senior 4-H’ers in Iowa,” said Cayla Taylor, campus 4-H youth program coordinator with Iowa State University Extension and Outreach. “These youth were selected because they have demonstrated exceptional skills in leadership, citizenship and overall achievement.”
Benton County 4-H’er Nicole Lowe is the daughter of Tom and Teresa Lowe. A nine-year member of 4-H, Lowe has been involved in the mechanics, sewing, clothing and fashion, photography and home improvement project areas. She has served as secretary, treasurer, reporter and vice president of her 4-H club. Lowe has participated in her county 4-H council, Citizenship-Washington Focus and Iowa 4-H Youth Conference.
“4-H has helped me develop leadership, cooperation and communication skills,” said Lowe. “I hope to see so many more youth become as passionate about 4-H as I am and better themselves through it.”
