ALBUQUERQUE -- The 2010 4-H state ambassadors and diplomats were inducted into office during the 4-H Senior Leadership Retreat in Albuquerque Jan. 16.
Selected as ambassadors were Courtney Hurt of Deming, Chelsea Rodriguez of Animas, Brandi Smith of Aztec and Jeremy Witte of Las Cruces. The 2010 diplomats are Savannah Arrey of Las Cruces, Brad Cosper of Los Lunas, Chelsea Fons of Hobbs and Taylor Whitaker of Dexter.
The senior 4-H members will share their respective responsibilities of ambassador and diplomat, which include assisting with the parade and tours at the New Mexico State Fair, planning and conducting the senior leadership retreat and assisting with the State 4-H Conference. They will also attend the Arizona Team Leadership Camp "Journey: Opportunities for Leaders of Tomorrow" and assist the New Mexico 4-H Youth Foundation in contacting donors and conducting public relations.
The two four-person teams were selected from applicants judged on their public speaking on the topic of how to attract more 4-H members to the senior leadership retreat and on how they performed during a group project for which they built a tower from paper cups and tape.
