Burleson honored by 4-H for Lifetime Achievement
The North Carolina Centennial 4-H Lifetime Achievement Awards Celebration took place April 23 in Concord, where the annual fundraising event honored the lifetime achievements of former 4-H members, families and supporters. N. C. State University basketball legend Tommy Burleson received the 4-H Lifetime Achievement Award, and Family Legacy Awards were presented to the Teeter and Vanderbilt/Cecil families for their support of North Carolina 4-H.
“This event provides an outstanding venue to highlight today’s 4-H youth development program and the excellent job it does helping young people become competent, caring and contributing members of society,” said Dr. Marshall Stewart, state 4-H program leader. “We’re especially glad to honor Tommy Burleson, the Teeter family and the Vanderbilt/Cecil family. Their generosity and dedication have helped propel 4-H through its first 100 years and, without a doubt, will continue to strengthen our organization in the next century.”
