JONATHAN GIBSON, 15, son of Bill and Nini Gibson of Old Taneytown Road, Westminster.

School: Sophomore at Westminster High School.

Honored for: Taking top honors when he showed his 3-year-old Dalmatian, Amber, in the senior novice obedience class at the 4-H Dog Show at the Maryland State Fair in Timonium Aug. 28.

He also has been active in 4-H showing chickens and pigs, and also in art, photography and woodworking.

Jonathan, who lives on a horse farm, also recently began volunteering with the Therapeutic Recreation Council, helping handicapped youths ride horses.

Goals: "I'd like to go to college and become an veterinarian."

Comments: "Amber is mostly a pet. She's a lot of fun, and she's always being silly, rolling around and shaking my hand.

"This is my first time, really," he said of showing a dog. "I just saw people doing it, and it looked like a lot of fun, and I needed a new 4-H project."
