Justin Buckbee was recognized as the Kiwanis Sunrisers of Winona 4-H Youth Representative for the month of April. Justin is the son of Steve and Joyce Buckbee and a senior at St. Charles High School. He is a member of the Utica Victory 4-H Club and is currently serving as the Club Vice President.
In 4-H, Justin has taken chickens and pigs to the Winona County Fair and Minnesota State Fair. In addition to taking pigs and chickens to the fair he has also taken a model rocket and dairy heifers. He said “I have learned that you have to walk your pigs a lot and then they will walk better at the fair.” Justin says “4-H offers an opportunity to a person who is a shy person so they will put themselves out there and learn how to make something or take care of something while having others help you and to make friends with all sorts of different people.” One of the advantages of 4-H according to Justin is that it teaches you responsibility of finishing something or teaching and taking care of an animal.
Winona Sunrisers Kiwanis Club honors one outstanding Winona County 4-H member during its breakfast meeting the fourth Wednesday of each month. The club meets on a weekly basis every Wednesday at 7 a.m. at the Winona Family Restaurant in Winona.
