Newton County 4-H member, Tabitha Overman, daughter of Jason and Stephanie Overman of Jasper, placed first in the Public Speaking event at the 2019 Arkansas State 4-H O’Rama. This year’s 4-H O’Rama was held at the University of Arkansas, Fayetteville Campus, July 23-26. Tabitha is currently serving as President of her 4-H Club the Mighty Buffaloes. Her talk was titled “Why Read”. After her presentation, one of the parents of the other competitors in the competition told her that her speech made him want to go get a book and read. Tabitha is only the second 4-H member to place first in an event from Newton County at State O’Rama. 

Tabitha will represent Arkansas and Newton County at National Competition in Colorado in January. This competition is held in connection with the National Round-Up in Denver.
