Fluor-BWXT Donates to 4-H Jackson County Exhibitors

JACKSON COUNTY, Ohio -- August 16, 2021 -- Fluor-BWXT, the company performing extensive environmental cleanup work at the U.S. Department of Energy’s former Portsmouth Gaseous Diffusion Plant in Pike County, is a proud supporter of the 4-H livestock auctions at county fairs throughout Southern Ohio. Recently, FBP provided $1,700 toward the auction of 10 animals shown by children of FBP employees at the Jackson County Fair.

The auctions provide participants with a measurable learning experience as well as an incentive to exhibit and sell quality market stock.

“We appreciate the values and lessons of 4-H and understand how important this organization is for the youth of our area,” said FBP Site Project Director JD Dowell. “These dedicated members put a tremendous amount of effort and hard work into their projects and we are happy to show our support.”

Cynthia Spires said her daughter Abby has participated in the 4-H auctions for several years but this was the first year she took goats and lambs to the fair.

“She loves animals and loves going to the fair and being with all of her friends,” Spires said. “Abby and her friend learned to shear the goats themselves and this year also helped with the lambs.”

FBP would like to congratulate Trent and Trevor Fulkerson, Libby and Natalie Allison, Abigail Spires, Zachary Daft, Peyton Johnson, Olivia Moore, Evan and Katelyn Williams, and all of the 4-H members who competed this year.
