“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.”

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.”
Alex Crockett, who participated in the Fentress County 4-H program, was named one of the University of Tennessee's record-breaking 19 Fullbright Scholarship recipient.
