Dwight Loveday, Interim Assistant Dean & Department Head

The last couple of days at TAE4-HW Conference we have had the opportunity to learn, share information, network with co-workers and have some fun and fellowship. It is exciting to be around 4-H professionals that exhibit the passion to do outstanding 4-H work. At the recognition banquet, we heard from Mr. Luke Willoughby, former 4-Her from DeKalb Co. Currently a lawyer in Nashville, Luke shared how 4-H has impacted his life. Listening to Luke, there is no doubt that 4-H agents have a tremendous influence on the lives of young people.
