4-H Visit to the Capitol

Share on

Justin Crowe, 4-H Director and State Program Leader

Recently, I had the opportunity to travel to Nashville to visit the legislature, along with the Tennessee 4-H State Council President Tim Held. He was asked to attend the House of Representatives Agriculture and Natural Resources committee to speak on behalf of Tennessee 4-H, and to share his story as part of National Ag Week.

Prior to the visit, Tim and I had the chance to walk around the Cordell Hull building, and Tim represented 4-H well during meetings with several legislators. While there, Tim was interviewed by the Tennessee Farm Bureau Federation Communications department for the Home and Farm Radio podcast series.

Tennessee 4-H is well represented in Nashville with several alums serving as legislators. They are always proud to see 4-H members walking down the halls of their building, making visits and advocating for the 4-H program. It was a great day for our organization!
