Happy New Year!

Justin Crowe, 4-H Director and State Program Leader

Like most of you, Julie and I sat up to ring in the new year and send the old one packing! While 2020 was certainly challenging we also had lots of wonderful 4-H activities and programs occur. The year saw new opportunities in virtual programming as well as increased opportunities to allow 4-H members to showcase their skills without leaving their home.

I recognize that we are not out of the woods yet, but it is a new year and with that comes a chance to re-group and make 2021 an outstanding year for Tennessee 4-H! For me, I am excited to make more face-to-face county visits. Social distancing is tough for me but it’s what we have to do to ensure safety and well-being for all.

Here’s to 2021 – May it be amazing!
