We believe Honor Club is a good measure of a quality teen pro- gram. A county cannot have Honor Club members if there are not a lot of opportunities for participation.
At the end of the third quarter, the Eastern Region leads the state with 177 initiates. Bradley is the top county with 41 initiates; fol- lowed by Sevier with 25; Claiborne with 22; and Knox and Henry with 19 each. For a complete summary of the 2017 Honor Club initiates by region and county, go to 4-H website.
Lydia Ferguson, student assistant in our department, is working with Honor Club this year. If you have Honor Club applications to be approved, be sure to use a summary form to list the applicants and allow enough time for her to review and process the applications in time for your initiation ceremony.
