This year’s recipients is Hawaii State Senator Lynne DeCoite.
Through her engagement with her immediate community on Molokai and extended community in Maui County and the state; her willingness to keep an open mind and listen; and her commitment to work with EVERYONE to make the State of Hawai’i a better place for all of its people, Ms. DeCoite demonstrates a strong alignment with the 4-H pledge to clearer thinking, greater loyalty, larger service, and better living for our clubs, our community, our country, and our world.
We appreciate Senator DeCoite’s passion for “doing the right thing for the people” and her support of the Hawaii State 4-H program. On behalf of the 4-H staff, leaders and volunteers, and its members, mahalo nui loa.
The entire ceremony is available to watch on the Hawai‘i 4-H Youtube Channel
