During the Opening Ceremonies of the 2021 NC 4-H State Horse Show, the Youth and Adult Candace Norman Volunteer Awards were presented. These awards are sponsored by the North Central District, in memory of long-time NC 4-H Horse Program and Orange county volunteer, Candance Norman. They are given annually to a 4-H youth member and adult volunteer who exhibit true dedication to and embodies all the characteristics and morals of 4-H – a well-rounded person who strives to make the community a better place through example and leadership.  

Youth Award Winner: Savannah Lindsey, Cumberland County

Savannah Lindsey has been an active 4-H member in Cumberland County for the past 6 years. She is a wonderful role model and maintains a strong passion for helping others through community service. Savannah has volunteered many hours of her time helping younger students learn how to ride and train their own horses. She has assisted her 4-H club leader when they share their horses with the local Boy Scout and Girl Scout troops, assists with the Falcon Children’s Home riding program and is also a coach for the Special Olympics Equestrian Team. The younger 4-Hers in her club are very fortunate because she helped coach them in horse bowl, hippology, and horse judging. Her 4-H Agent stated her passion and commitment to serving others has been an inspiration to all.

Adult Award Winner: Matthew McVey, Rockingham County

 Matthew McVey is a Rockingham County 4-H volunteer who “married” into the 4-H horse program but from day one he was Kountry Kids 4-H club’s biggest fan. He is always willing to jump in and help on the club, county, district, and state levels. He is always running around making sure things run smoothly. His wife says he is the brains behind the 4-H club, keeping the books and bringing so many great ideas to the table. Matthew is very deserving of this award and Candace would be proud of the influence he has on our young 4-H members.
