EAST AMWELL, NJ - Nicholas Millan of Pittstown is the 2017 recipient of the Senator’s Trophy for outstanding leadership, presented at the Hunterdon County 4-H and Agricultural Fair.

State Sen. Michael Doherty (R-23) presented the award during opening ceremonies on Aug. 23 at the fair here.

The Senator’s Trophy was started in 1972 by Bill Schluter, then a senator representing Hunterdon, to honor a 4-H teen who exemplifies strong leadership qualities. The recipient must be a member in good standing of the 4-H Junior Leaders program, active in leadership, work well with young members and participate in community service and public speaking.

Nick is an eight-year member of the Junior Leaders. During his 4-H involvement, he participated in public speaking on the club, county and state level. He assisted with multiple 4-H workshops teaching younger members skills.

According to Sherrie Peterson, 4-H Program Associate, Nick is “extremely involved in community service. He believes in giving back to the community.” For instance, he came up with the idea of holding a benefit through Junior Leaders to help people with ALS (amyotrophic lateral sclerosis), known as Lou Gehrig’s disease. A lot of ground work went into this benefit and Nick worked hard to make sure that it did well; it raised $400, which was donated to the ALS Foundation.

Another time, the Hunterdon County Division of Emergency Services asked for help with bagging ice. Once a week for several weeks, Nick came in and bagged the ice. He made over 500 bags.

“Nick is hard working and helpful, and very deserving of this recognition,” Peterson said.
