JESSICA PIERSCHBACHER, 4-H HALL of FAME, 2006
Jessica PIERSCHBACHER touched many youth and adults with her kindness, caring, and fairness in 4-H
and by being a great person during her 16 years of life.
She helped many youth to see the value and good of being involved in 4-H.
She was a true example of what 4-H is about and why learning by doing develops skill and character.
Jessica's ability to provide leadership, share a caring attitude, and assist others to learn and do was practiced
continuously in 4-H. She cared deeply about people around her, doing the right thing at the right time, sharing a great
smile, and being a positive role model. She impacted her local club and 4-H members in Ringgold County with her can-do
spirit even when she was extremely ill. Jessica was an excellent example of practicing citizenship in all that she did
in her club and on the county level. Jessica’s last 4-H activity was leading a fleece blanket workshop in her club so
hospitalized children would take a blanket with them when they were well enough to go home. Jessica touched many people
with her kindness, caring, fairness, and by being a great person.
