Pam Weaver of Jasper County was honored with a 2021 Frank Graham 4-H Volunteer Leadership Award by the 4-H Center for Youth Development in March. Pam was one of 60 volunteers recognized statewide for commitment and leadership to the University of Missouri Extension 4-H Youth Development program. Pam has served the Jasper County 4-H program for 22 years.

“It is an honor to provide these outstanding volunteers with this recognition in honor of the late Frank Graham, also known as Mr. 4-H. These volunteers have demonstrated loyalty and skills in developing youth as leaders of today,” said Dr. Lupita Fabregas, Director of the MU Extension 4-H Center for Youth Development.

The Frank Graham 4-H Volunteer Leadership award recognizes exemplary volunteers for their hard work and dedication to helping Missouri youth grow. It is named for Frank Graham who served as director of MU Extension 4-H Center for Youth Development from 1958-1975. During his 33 years of service, Graham was an avid supporter of volunteer leadership, believing that a volunteer is the foundation of the 4-H program.
