Alabama 4-H Wall of Fame

Ryan Sprinkle

Fayette County 4-H Alumnus

Inducted February 28, 2008

Ryan Sprinkle’s term as president of the Alabama 4-H State Council (2005-2006) will be remembered as significant: the state 4-H program was implementing its new volunteer-led, out-of-school delivery methods, and he enthusiastically supported the new vision among his fellow 4-H’ers.

In his 10-year span as a 4-H member, Sprinkle held every club office and participated in 4-H contests at every level. Public speaking was the 4-H project that he excelled in, especially persuasive speaking. Leadership experience was gained through his involvement in the Fayette County Youth Committee, Bankhead Region 4-H Council, and the 4-H State Council. He also participated in several 4-H leadership events, including Citizenship Washington Focus, National 4-H Congress, and National 4-H Conference.

Sprinkle has been committed to 4-H since the third grade when the “4-H lady” came to his school. Currently a freshman at the University of Alabama, he is vice president of the Alpha Kappa Psi pledge class, a member of the Freshman Forum Public Policy Team and serves on the University of Alabama Relay for Life Executive Committee. He also co-chairs the State Farm Southern Zone Youth Advisory Board.
