Two young men from Greenwood were named Arkansas 4-H Teen Stars during the annual Teen Star and Hall of Fame Banquet, held at the Arkansas 4-H Center in Ferndale, Ark. Only 50 youth per year are named TeenStars. Matthew Branum and Kyle Russell were both named Teen Stars and Arkansas 4-H Ambassadors. Only 25 Ambassadors are chosen each year and the youth must be named a Teen Star before being named an Ambassador. Branum and Russell delivered a promotional speech and went through a rigorous interview process as part of the selection process.
