MOUNT VERNON — Emma Lucas of The Lighthouse 4-H Club was pleasantly surprised Thursday evening when she won Best of Show at the 2017 4-H Style Revue and Awards Program.
Emma, the daughter of Sean and Mehgan Lucas, said winning was amazing and a good way to finish out her 4-H career. Asked why she has chosen sewing projects, Emma said sewing teaches invaluable skills a person can use throughout life.
