COLUMBIA, Mo. — Bruce Childress of Scotland County was named a 2015 Naomi Crouch 4-H Volunteer Leadership Awardee, on March 13 in Columbia. Bruce was recognized for his commitment to the University of Missouri Extension 4-H youth development program.
"It is our great pleasure to honor Bruce with the Naomi Crouch award for his dedication to Missouri 4-H," said Cheryl Reams, executive director of the Missouri 4-H Foundation. "Volunteers like Bruce have made Missouri 4-H the quality experience that it is today, and we are indebted to him for his years of service."

The Naomi Crouch 4-H Volunteer Leadership Award is given annually to volunteers and organizations that devote their time and talents to MU Extension's 4-H youth development program.
