2011 Cherokee CountySally Wilkie is one of Cherokee County’s brightest shining 4-H volunteers.  She received the “Leader of the Year” recognition in 1996 and again in 2003.

She was the leader of the Mill Creek Valley 4-H Club 21 years. She stresses to the club members the importance of citizenship and getting involved in community service activities.  Some of the community service projects planned and implemented by the club include:  helping local veterans at Veteran’s Appreciation Day by setting up the “Vietnam Vet’s Moving Wall”, putting up flags for the Memorial Day observance at local cemeteries, Adopt-a-Highway and helping with the historic Cherokee Depot project.

Sally was a member of the County Youth Committee 9 years.  She was instrumental in helping with the Bucket/Bottle Calf show.  In addition, her family invites younger brothers and sisters of 4-H’ers to come to their dairy farm to work with the younger calves.  She also wrote a grant to renovate one of the 4-H buildings at the fair grounds.

She and her husband have raised 3 boys, also 4-Her’s, and now ready to welcome grandchildren into her club.

Sally Wilkie is a HUGE 4-H program supporter, ready to help where help is needed.
