Justin Crowe, 4-H Youth Development Director and State Leader
This past weekend the 2020-2021 State 4-H Council met in Crossville at the Clyde M. York 4-H Center for their fall meeting. While there, the group learned new skills relating to leadership, service and becoming an advocate for agriculture. They also enjoyed hosting a socially distanced trunk or treat event for local youth. In addition to the fun activities, the group spent a great deal of time reflecting on the unique challenges brought on throughout 2020 and strategized on how we can best serve our state’s youth in 2021. This group of 4-H leaders brain- stormed how we can continue to make the best better and grow the most outstanding 4-H program in the nation even during a global pandemic. It is inspiring to see the wisdom and maturing exhibited by teens when they are put to the test.
