In offices tucked away in a county building along South Dunbridge Road magic happens on a regular basis.
The building houses the Ohio State University Extension office including the 4-H program. The staff works well together with Jenny Morlock recently recognized at the state level for her contributions.
"I'm passionate about 4-H," Morlock said. "It's made me who I am today."
The 4-H program assistant was named the 2013 Ohio recipient of the Achievement in Service Award by the state's chapter of the National Association of 4-H Extension Professionals.
Listing her credentials in the application to receive this award required two printed pages. Those who know her well, say even that doesn't fully express her value to the organization.
"This award says a lot about Jenny," said Jayne Roth, the county's 4-H Extension educator. "People across the state thought highly of her skills. They see what she does."

They grow big so fast. While many parents have uttered that phrase about their children, on Saturday that sentiment was expressed about the hogs being sold at the 2013 Catch-a-pig sale held at the Wood County Fairgrounds.
Dalton Limes and Madison Milligan were judged to have the top two hogs at this year's annual event featuring the small pigs caught during the Wood County Fair in August.
Dalton raised "Hammy" to be the grand champion; while Madison showed the reserve champion, "Twizzler." "Carly" was the heaviest hog in the show tipping the scales at 365 pounds.
Carly was fed by Ross Welling, in earning the title of rate of gain winner.
Eastwood FFA members Lane Kemner and Garrett Tuck served as the judges for the event.

PEMBERVILLE - It's official ... It is now "The Wood County Fair" instead of simply Wood County Fair. The change was made at Thursday night's meeting of the Senior Fair Board as members voted to change the name of the annual summer gala held at the Wood County Fairgrounds.
The biggest discussion centered around the pronunciation of the additional word as "Thuh" or "Thee." While not all the directors voted, there was no opposition to adding the word with no conclusive decision on the way to say it. There was no explanation offered as to why "The" need for "The" extra word in "The" fair's name.
The meeting also included the annual Christmas dinner party, It was held for the first time at the Riverview Banquet Center in Pemberville.
It was a festive atmosphere including the announcement by the three Wood County Commissioners that they approved $15,500 in finances to tile the main south parking lot for the fairgrounds to improve drainage. Jim Carter made the announcement with Doris Herringshaw and Joel Kuhlman by his side.
