4-H alumna honored for her ASL performance

4-H alumna Lauren Urton gave a musical performance using American Sign Language at the 4-H National Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony. According to Wendy Hein, a 4-H Youth Development faculty in Clackamas County who nominated Urton for the honor, Urton “… does far more than simply translate the lyrics into ASL. When she signs a song her whole body is engaged. Her face lights up with emotion. The audience is drawn in. It is a unique kind of musical performance that connects with everyone from the front row to the top bleacher.” You can read more in the Molalla Pioneer.
