4-H student of the week is 14-year-old Alfroncius Dowles Jr., a tenth grade student at Bastrop High School Why did you join 4-H? I joined 4-H to learn more about livestock. What do you like most about 4-H? I like the 4-H rodeos and meeting new people. Have you ever won any awards in 4-H? If so, which award(s)? I placed first in the breakaway and tie-down divisions in District competition, placed second in breakaway and tie-down at State and fourth in breakaway at Regionals. What would you say to a student who is considering joining 4-H next year? I would tell them that 4-H is a good learning club to be a part of and you meet people from all over the state and other states. This year was a blast for me and I am looking forward to next year.. Who is your role model and why? My dad is my role model because he encouraged me to start riding horses and he helps me to practice so I can improve my skills.
