Nine N.C. 4-H'ers Bring Home Top National Honors, 1949

From the December 1949 issue of Extension Farm-News

One of the highest honors that a 4-H Club member can receive was recently awarded to nine young Tar Heels shown above when they were declared national winners in their respective projects at National 4-H Club Congress in Chicago. This is a record number of national winners in any one year for North Carolina. Reading from left to right, the winners are, (top row) Margaret Lee Stevens, Wayne County; winner in food preparation; Joan Penland, Clay, recreation and rural arts; Pauline Howe, Gaston, home improvement; (middle row) Wesley Manning, Pitt, farm safety; Evelyn Waugh, Surry, clothing; Ralph Brown, Iredell, healthy; (bottom row) Carolyn Miller, Iredell, girls’ record; Doris Strickland, Halifax, canning; and Nancy Pritchett, Guilford, poultry.
