Saline County 4-H’er Honored with Prudential Spirit of Community Award
Callie Oxford, a Saline County 4-H member of the Dungaree Dudes and Dolls 4-H Club and a Harrisburg High School freshman, was recently honored at the April Harrisburg Community Unit School District #3 school board meeting with a Prudential Spirit of Community Award.
Callie received an engraved bronze Distinguished Finalist medallion for her service work in our community. In 2014, Callie began a personal mission called “Pass It On” to conduct a service project once every month. Since the beginning of her campaign on National Pay It Forward Day in 2014, she has visited nursing home patients, left scarves and gloves around town for those in need to take, raised awareness for the chronic illness Lupus, and launched a get-well card campaign for a local youth awaiting a heart transplant.
Based on the 500+ volunteer hours, Ms. Oxford also qualified for the President’s Volunteer Service Award. She received a certificate and a letter signed by President Obama.
We here at University of Illinois Extension and Saline County 4-H are very proud of Callie Oxford and her accomplishments. Congratulations Callie!
Saline County 4-H members and adult volunteers, as well as members of several youth and church groups, recently partnered with 4-H youth and volunteers from Gallatin, Hamilton, Hardin, Pope, and White counties, Unit #24 staff members, University of Illinois Extension and Illini Fighting Hunger to package over 16,000 meals for distribution to area food pantries. Those present had a great time and made a big difference in their communities by pledging their “Hands to Larger Service”. Thank you to Dorrisville Baptist Church for providing the location for this event.
