Awards and Accomplishments (Feb. 2014)

Sharon (Sherri) Wright was honored in October by being inducted into the 4-H Hall of Fame for her lifetime of Extension work and specifically as the national program leader for the USDA's Children Youth and Families At Risk (CYFAR) Program.

She worked tirelessly for the inception and development of CYFAR. During her tenure, she directed grants to land-grant universities for community programs that benefited more than 27,000 at-risk, low-income youth and families. The 4-H Hall of Fame is sponsored by National 4-H Council. Visit the Hall of Fame for more information.
