4-H Youth Development

Amy West receives Northeast Regional Volunteer of the Year Award


Amy West has been involved in 4-H for her entire life. Growing up as a Sussex County 4-H member, she was very active at the local, county and state levels. She participated in a variety of projects and activities which helped her to become a very well-rounded person.

When Amy had children of her own who were old enough to join 4-H, she decided to give back to 4-H by becoming involved with the Sussex 4-H Link Organization and the county program. Amy jumped right in and helped with as many events as she could, always sharing new insights and ideas.  She also became a volunteer leader with the Hollymount 4-H Club.  She helped guide the youth and came up with many creative activities.  In 2017, she became the Organizational Leader for the Hollymount Club and has helped the club grow even more!

Through the years, Amy has taken many roles at the county level.  She is an active member of the Sussex Leader Association where she helps at many events.  She is also the President of the Sussex County 4-H Order of Links.  Amy has done a great job in this role always promoting Links sponsored events and encouraging more Links to give back and help with the program. 

Amy is always willing to help wherever needed.  Her love and dedication to 4-H shine through in all that she does!  She works well with both youth and adults, always encouraging them to learn new things and get involved. 

Amy West truly deserves the Northeast Regional Volunteer of the Year Award.  She may have only been a leader for 5 years, but the hard work and dedication she has put into being a 4-H Leader far exceeds those years.  Amy has been a role model for many of the leaders in her club and county and continues to work hard in all levels of 4-H to “Make the Best Better!”
