South Side High School Senior Seth Moore has been selected as the second winner in the “Discovering Tomorrow’s Leaders” program.  Called a “good role model” by the person who nominated him, Moore is a member of both the South Side Future Farmers of America and the Van Buren County 4-H Club.

Moore, 18, son of Darrell and Lanita Moore of Bee Branch, was selected for his participation and leadership in both FFA and 4-H.  Moore has shown chickens, pigs, lambs and cattle through both organizations for 11 years at the county, district and state fairs.

Moore was applauded for mentoring younger students at the fairs even though they may have been competing against him.

As sponsor of the “Discovering Tomorrow’s Leaders” program, Chesapeake Energy will donate a computer to South Side High School in Moore’s name.  And as a weekly winner, he is now eligible to win his own laptop computer when the program ends in May.

The “Discovering Tomorrow’s Leaders” program is open to all students in Van Buren County.  People in the schools and communities can nominate students who belong to either FFA or 4-H and exhibit outstanding leadership qualities.  A weekly winner will be selected for the next six weeks, and a computer will be donated to each winner’s school.

The nomination form will run every other week in the Van Buren County Democrat and the Fairfield Bay News.  An online version of the form is also

available on the newspapers’ Web sites as well as the Web site of KFFB-FM Radio.  The two newspapers and KFFB are media partners for the program.

“Chesapeake wants to recognize FFA and 4-H students for their leadership and contribution to their communities,” said Robert Zeiler, Chesapeake manager of community affairs.

At the end of the program the eight winning students and their parents will be invited to attend a banquet where two lucky students will win personal laptop computers.
