Adair Youth at KY 4-H Summit, Jabez, KY

By Tony Rose, Adair County Extension Agent for Youth

Youth in grades 6-8 can built their leadership, citizenship and communications skills while having fun and making new friends during the Kentucky 4-H Summit at the Kentucky Leadership Center in Jabez. Mary Susan Coomer, Leslie Cowan, Allison Feese, Savhanna Pearson, and Sydney Bright attended the Summit from Adair County.

Some of the greatest benefits youths received from 4-H are confidence and knowledge to be good communicators and leaders. 4-H Summit worked to strengthen these qualities through hands-on workshops, guest speakers, seminars, group living, recreation and recognition. During the summit, youth will be able to take up to four fun and educational workshops. Youth must sign up for these workshops at the beginning of the summit.

In addition to the character building exercises, youths also were introduced to the many opportunities available to them as senior 4-H members. Senior 4-H members are high school youth.

Educational programs of the Kentucky Cooperative Extension Service serve all people regardless of race, color, age, sex, religion, disability, or national origin.
