Angie Hopkins has been around horses for a long time but when her 5-year-old daughter wanted to learn more about horses Angie decided to get her involved in a local 4-H horse club. That was 13 years ago when Angie signed her youngest child, Carly, up for the Cherokee Rider’s 4-H Horse Club. What Angie didn’t know was that she would eventually become the volunteer leader for that club.

Club leader Jan Griggs decided when her daughter Kiffney had graduated high school and aged out of 4-H that it was time for a new leader one that could stay with the club for a while like she had done. She wanted someone to be as committed to the club and club kids as she was so she asked Angie to take over the leadership of the club. Angie has been club leader for right at 8 years now and has done a great job.

Angie is an enthusiastic, supportive, horse loving, kid loving, kind-hearted, volunteer! She always gives 100% with anything she helps with. She is always working to get more kids involved with horses and 4-H. She is helpful to parents trying to find horses that meet the needs of their kids and their riding abilities. She loans her own horses, borrows friends horses, anything that is safe for the youth wanting to ride she will try to make it happen. She even trailers horses for youth and has even hauled a horse all the way to the State 4-H Horse Show in Raleigh to make sure that a young person got to show at the state show. Then she even took that same young lady all the way to Perry Georgia for the Southern Regions 4-H Championship show and the child was not her child or even related but a young lady that really wanted to show what she and her horse could do. She is always willing to help the county 4-H program as well and encourages young people to join 4-H every chance she gets.

Angie thank you for all you do to in “Making the Best Better” through volunteering for 4-H.
