Surprised. Shocked.

Those are the words Machelle Suchcicki used to describe how she felt when she was announced as this year's outstanding 4-H leader.

The announcement was made on Saturday, July 20, during a ceremony at Hier's Park during the 2013 Huntington County 4-H Fair.

The Warren native has been a volunteer in the Best-N-All and We Raise ‘Em 4-H clubs.

"We help the kids to work on a number of projects," Suchcicki states. "That includes livestock, floriculture and electric."
