Sharon Nabours is a longtime volunteer for Calcasieu parish 4-H. Through a grant, she was employed by AmeriCorps and conducted wetlands programs for the AgCenter as a result. Her wetlands programs were taught in over 40 schools in Calcasieu and Cameron parishes and reached over 5,000 students over the course of 5 years. She started her 4-H volunteer career as a parent, helping the club organizational leader where her children went to school. After her kids moved to middle school, Sharon filled the role as the club organizational leader. Sharon has been a great resource for the Calcasieu 4-H program and served as a member of the advisory board from 1999-2000 and as a member of the state 4-H foundation board of directors from 2009-2012. Sharon has volunteered in many different capacities including chaperoning summer camps, 4-H short course, parish exchange trips and served as a leader during Wild Woods Wandering Camps. Mrs. Sharon was instrumental in conducting the storm drain campaign in Calcasieu. She also served the sponsor of the Calcasieu Parish Environmental Club and met once per month with members for 2 years. Additionally, she has assisted with the Calcasieu Parish livestock sheep and rabbit shows at the parish, district, and state levels. She is still active to this day as her grandchildren are now 4-Hers. Mrs. Sharon truly sets the example of what 4-H is all about. She bleeds Kelly green and white and believes in the life and leadership skills 4-H instills in today’s youth!
