RENNSELAER CO., N.Y. — Amanda Thrasher, the daughter of Randy Thrasher and Debbie Gutierrez of Brunswick received the 2019 4-H Lohnes Award. This citizenship award is presented to a senior 4-H equine member that displays outstanding sportsmanship, hard work ethic, ease in working with others and is simply a good role model. This award is supported by the family of Bob Lohnes who established this award several years ago.
Amanda has a hearty and vast 4-H career doing a number of projects from dogs and beef cattle as examples to her primary focal point of horses, which includes showing, educational equine teams and volunteering extensively. Currently, Amanda is an active member of the Stablemates and Farmer’s United Clubs as well as the 4-H Interstate Exchange and Teen Ambassadors. When there is a 4-H activity going on in the county, chances are very high that Amanda will be there contributing somehow either as a participant, helper or teen leader. Amanda is currently a junior at Tech Valley High School and is very involved in school activities and her community. We thank and congratulate Amanda for her hard work and support of our 4-H Program and being an outstanding role model to her fellow 4-H Members.
