After Grechen’s being named a Top 5 Finalist, her former 4-H Advisor Kelley Dunkle-Detillion had this to say on her Facebook page; “(I am) beyond honored to have been one of her Advisors over the past several years. Gretchen has always been a leader, she does the right things when nobody is watching, she is always willing to help a fellow member & has achieved numerous awards through 4-H. Gretchen has devoted hundreds of hours as a camp counselor at 4-H camp, as a Jr. Leader & serving as a Jr. Fairboard Member.  She has worked extremely hard and her hard work has paid off. It is time to own it!”
