Danielle Simmons ’22 has been a member of Kent 4-H for 11 years as part of the Shore Shots and Triple Shots 4-H Shooting Sports. Her 4-H projects include archery, expressive arts, environmental science, forestry, gardening, and photography. The past couple of years have been tough ones for many 4-H’ers especially for those trying to achieve the highest levels of their 4-H projects during a pandemic. In 2021, Danielle earned the highest level, first place senior at the Maryland State Archery Match, however plans to send the team to nationals fizzled. Despite this, she has persevered and continues to look on the bright side. She plans to start an archery program at Washington College, which she’ll be attending in the fall. 
 
The 4-H Character Award is the only award selected by the 4-H Educator. Both nationally and locally, 4-H is a partner organization in Character Counts. The 4-H Behavioral Expectations are framed around the six pillars of Character: Caring, Citizenship, Fairness, Respect, Responsibility, and Trustworthiness.
