Dr. Richard Clark
Over the past year, Dr. Laura Stephenson and Dr. Richard Clark have committed to better coordinate and enhance the programming offered by each program area. As we know, programming for youth happens in both the 4-H program and the Family and Consumer Science areas. An advisory committee of agents, regional specialists, regional program leaders and state specialists has been created and they are working diligently on a plan to enhance collaboration. The committee is currently being chaired by Jamie Harris, 4-H Area Special- ist in the Central Region.
This year’s goals are to:
- Identify 4 joint programs to conduct
- Prioritize joint trainings
- Ensure FCS/4-H Project alignment
- Identify potential specialty camps, events, and capstone experiences
I hope that in each of our county offices we will work closely together to integrate and co- ordinate educational experiences for Tennessee youth and families.
