“If there’s one program that I will make sure my children are involved in someday, it will be 4-H. I am forever grateful to the 4-H program and the experiences I had during my 10 years in it. I met my best friends in 4-H, became a public speaker, learned about the agriculture industry (which I work in today), learned how to cook and sew and found an interest in my family history, among many other things from the 4-H program. I had the opportunity to travel across the United States during my time in 4-H, and I know that none of this could have happened without the support of the people who donate to the program. 4-H is a one-of-a-kind program and I cherish all of the moments I had while I was involved in it!”
