MOOSE JAW — A special award was handed out as part of the awards ceremony at the Interclub 4-H Beef Show and Sale.

Lesley Cochrane was presented a plaque recognizing her induction into the Saskatchewan 4-H Hall of Fame.

Cochrane, who has been involved in 4-H for most of her life, has served several clubs.

As a child Cochrane was a member of the Moose Jaw Golden Mile Pacers 4-H Light Horse Club.

When she graduated and aged out of being a 4-H member, she joined the Eyebrow Trailblazers which was part of the Eyebrow general club, to continue with her passion of 4-H.

Cochrane has held several positions in 4-H. She has been a project leader, general leader and club delegate at the semi-annual District 8 meetings, those attending the Beef Show and Sale were told.

Cochrane has been part of several committees, including the provincial youth equestrian annual show, and became a member for the Moose Jaw Inter 4-H Show and Sale.

She is known for her commitment to adding 4-H classes to the Moose Jaw Fair horse show.

“Her efforts were key to increasing the popularity and success of this show and successfully increased exhibitors to the point that there was no more room for livestock stabling,” show attendees heard.

It was also noted she has always been busy behind the scenes making the fair feel like a family affair. Cochrane has been successful at creating a loving and supportive environment for the members.
