Over 400 4-H'ers and interested adults gathered recently for the annual St. James Parish 4-H Achievement Day at Lutcher High School on May 11.  Awards and recognition were given to 4-H individuals and 4-H Clubs throughout the day, as well as recognizing adults who volunteer their time to work in the 4-H program.

The day began with the presentation of the Six Pillars of Character by Lutcher 4-H'ers.  A parade of banners from each of the 4-H Clubs and the presentation of flags by Lutcher High 4-H'ers Colin Berthelot and Stevie McClung followed. Lutcher High 4-H'er Emily Swisher-Anderson and Brandi Sieber explained the Six Pillars of Character as the pillars were brought up to the front of the gym.  Paulina 4-H'er Hannah Berthelot led the group in the National Anthem.  Serving as master of ceremonies was Lutcher High School 4-H President Christine Schexnayder.  Pledges and prayer were led by Lutcher High School members Remy Roper, Tamara Scott and Rebekah Taylor.
