— Written By

Chloé Harrelson has been attending the Hiwassee Dam Soaring Eagles 4-H Club for the last 12 years and has been a part of the 4-H Teen Leadership Council of Cherokee County for the last 6 Years. Chloé is the daughter of Becca Harrelson and has two younger siblings that are also in 4-H, Brittany Harrelson and Kennedy Starks.

Chloé has participated in several district and state-level 4-H events during her 4-H career. Chloé has participated in 4-H Presentations and won gold and bronze at the district level then continued on to compete at the state level presentations for her gold win. She has been an outstanding leader in her 4-H club and the teen leadership club serving as president and in other roles. Chloé has represented Cherokee County at 4-H Citizenship North Carolina Focus, which she always participated in the NC Spin program as well as the meet and greet with our legislators.  I can always count on Chloé to help at any event where she can promote 4-H and the life skills she has learned through 4-H.

Chloé’s hard work and dedication to 4-H paid off in the form of a 4-H scholarship being awarded to her. 4-H scholarships are very competitive and sometimes hard to get but with her years of service and good grades, she was awarded the Dr. David and Carol Burnette 4-H Scholarship for the Western District for $1,000. We are so proud of Chloé and all of her accomplishments.

Chloé not only represents Cherokee County 4-H well but also represents her school, Hiwassee Dam High School, with her best. Chloé is the Class of 2019 Valedictorian and Vocational Honor Student. Chloé will continue her education at University of North Carolina Chapel Hill, where she will be pursuing a degree in chemistry with plans to become a pharmacist.
