Caleb Cheng, a member of the Palm Beach County 4-H program, has been selected to serve on the National 4-H Board of Trustees. Cheng, 18, has been a 4-H member in the county for 14 years.
The national council supports national and state programs with a focus on fundraising, brand management, communications and fiduciary services. Cheng’s duties on the board will bring him from Riviera Beach to Washington, D.C. for his three-year appointment.
Cheng has already demonstrated his skill for fundraising by securing two corporate sponsorships that helped raise approximately $7,000 for Florida 4-H. “I have a vision for 4-H on a much larger scale than it is today, and I believe it is quite attainable with a few simple solutions involving the promotion of 4-H in schools,” he said.
