Kris Doyle, of Lancaster, was recently honored for 40 years of volunteer service to the Ohio 4-H Youth Development program. This award is sponsored by Ohio Farm Bureau Foundation.

Kris says, ”I continue to volunteer because I have seen over the years how 4-H has impacted the youth in so many ways. I want to be a part of that experience, to see them grow into outstanding adults who contribute in their own ways to their community.”  The 2021 awards presentation was held on March 11 and can be viewed online at
