“I learned to appreciate the value of giving back through 4-H and I have never forgotten the value of community service during my lifetime."
In Meigs County, the four 4-H All Star members are making waves of their own.
Ben Powell 'bleeds green' and his contributions to Tennessee 4-H are unparalleled.
During the last week of July, 4-H'ers from around the state gathered at the University of Tennessee, Martin for the 2018 Roundup. Congratulations to the 2018 winners!
“The biggest draw was a chance to lead youth livestock and equine programs in Tennessee. I have a passion for youth and agriculture and relish the opportunity to enhance the youth animal science experience.”
“Seeing County volunteers become certified 4-H Instructors, with all their energy and enthusiasm, then turning that energy into real 4-H development is a wonderful thing.”
Tennessee 4-H has partnered with the University of Tennessee Admissions Office to provide 4-H’ers from around the state with the Next Chapter Program. The Next Chapter Program is designed to help 4-H’ers to be successful in both college and career endeavors.
Mary Beth Antunes has turned a lifetime of 4-H into a family affair.
“The Loudon County 4-H livestock program is built on the foundation that Greer, along with her 4-H agents, helped lay. Any 4-H’er who has come through the livestock program in the last 10 or 15 years has been touched by Greer’s involvement.”
“4-H helped me experience a larger world. It provided me with lifelong friends and it led me to my career at TDA. I was just a little 4-Her from Rhea County. And I didn’t get it then. But I get it now.”
