The 2023 Candace Norman Youth and Adult Service Awards were presented during the opening ceremonies of the NC State 4-H Horse Show on July 7. 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: Kyra Worth, Chatham County
Kyra has been a 4-H’er for over 9 years and has been a long-time volunteer for the Walk in My Shoes Therapeutic Riding program in Johnston County. Kyra is a mentor for her other 4-H peers in the Horsekateers 4-H Horse Club in Chatham County. Just as Candace Norman was the volunteer that everyone relied on, Kyra is similarly depended upon by her teammates and coaches as a rational, calm, dependable team leader. Kyra embodies the “servant leader” mindset, fostering an inclusive atmosphere by working in the trenches with those she is leading. She is a 4-Her that will be remembered and emulated by all youth for years to come.

Adult Award Winner: Amanda Baucom, Union County
Amanda has been involved in the NC 4-H Horse Program for over thirty years and is an alumnus of the program. Her South Central District fellow leaders describe her as the “backbone of the South Qualifying show.” Amanda serves as the show secretary and is the treasurer of the district. Amanda gives selflessly of her time and talents, all while working full-time and taking care of her family. She is one of the most dependable volunteers and we are so lucky to have her. Thank you, Amanda, for all you have done and continue to do for the program and youth of NC.
