2015 Iberia Parish Outstanding 4-H'ers

2015 Iberia Parish Outstanding 4-H'ers

The 2015 Iberia Parish Achievement Day was held on Saturday, April 11, 2015 at Westgate High School. More than 200 4-H'ers from throughout the parish competed in various contests, including the Fashion Revue Contest.

This year's dedication went to Mrs. Ada Palermo, who began her affiliation with the Louisiana 4-H program as a 4-H member in Iberia Parish in the 1960s. After earning a B.S. degree in Home Ec Education from USL and a Master's Degree in Extension Education from LSU,  she became an Extension agent in 1983 when she was hired in Grant Parish serving as an Assistant Agent. She later worked as a 4-H agent in St. Mary and as a Home Ec. Agent in Iberia and St. Mary from 1994 until 1997. In 2001 she served as Parish Chairman and 4-H agent in Iberia Parish until moving to Concordia Parish in 2008 where she served as a 4-H Agent and retired in 2010.

Mrs. Ada truly made a positive difference in the lives of the young people she touched during her outstanding career as a 4-H agent with the LSU AgCenter for 30 years in 4 parishes.

Each year, the Louisiana 4-H Hall of Fame inducts 12 people from across Louisiana. This year Iberia has two individuals  that will be inducted into the Louisiana 4-H Hall of Fame.

Our first inducee is Mr. Burt Cestia. Mr. Cestia is a charter member of the Iberia Parish 4-H Foundation assisting with finances of the parish program for over 15 years. He continues to serve as a board member of the Iberia Parish 4-H Foundation.  He is the catalyst that helped established fundraisers for the parish 4-H program particularly the creation of the Iberia 4-H Foundation's annual golf tournament. He also helps members secure buyers for the Iberia Parish Sugarcane Livestock Sale. Thanks to his hard work and guidance, the parish's foundation is strong and steady allowing the overall parish program to be successful in the educational programs it provides to its 1,000 youth members.

Our second inducee  is Dr. Catherine Segura. Dr. Segura began her 4-H career as an active 4-H club member at St. Joseph Catholic School in Iberia Parish during her school years. As a 4-H alumni, she served as a 4-H organizational leader, workshop presenter, Iberia 4-H event and activity judge, project leader and parent volunteer. Furthermore, she has been an essential asset as an Iberia Parish Overall Advisory Committee member, 4-H advocate, Iberia Parish 4-H Advisory Committee member and one of the original founders of the annual Ag Days (now Ag Adventures). She is a  Louisiana 4-H Foundation Board of Trustee member, 4-H Donor and has supported the Iberia Parish 4-H program as a Principal of Avery Island  Elementary and Elementary Curriculum Supervisor of the Iberia Parish School Board.
