Faulkner County 4-H Member visits US Capitol
The National 4-H Council recently held its second 4-H Congressional Breakfast on Capitol Hill. Faulkner County 4-H member, Travis Clark, was one of five Arkansas youth in attendance and one of a total of 255 attendees, which included 19 state Senators and Representatives, Cooperative Extension leaders, USDA representatives, and 4-H youth from across the nation.
The event provided an opportunity for 4-H youth leaders from across the nation to share the impact of the 4-H program with members of Congress.
In addition to meeting decision makers from around the county, Arkansas 4-H youth had a special opportunity to visit with US Congressman and 4-H Alumni, John Boozeman. Later the 4-H delegates and their chaperones, Marion County Agriculture Agent, Brian See and Carroll County Interim Staff Chair, Leadra Martin joined another Arkansas delegation representing the Joint Council of Extension Professionals.
