Local sheep farmers come to aid in Kansas; Butler named 4-H ambassador

FREDERICKTOWN — Fourteen-year-old Mattie Butler, a member of Anything Goes 4-H, was named the 2018 Sheep Ambassador by the Knox County Sheep Improvement Association at its annual dinner Monday evening.

“I was really happy and surprised, and I’m looking forward to the role,” said the daughter of Mary and Dave Butler. “I’m proud to help promote the sheep industry.”

Mattie was chosen from four applicants for the position.

About 100 people filled the dining room, a turnout Association President Dennis Shinaberry called “fantastic” and added that they really stepped up to help the scholarship program in the annual auction, which raised $995.
