Colleton County 4-H’ers Attend County Council

Dawn Stuckey, 4-H Youth Development Agent – Colleton and Hampton Counties

Colleton County 4-H Volunteer Leader and members from Blue Ribbon Riders 4-H Club and Colleton County 4-H Club joined 4-H Agent Dawn Stuckey to visit Colleton County Council to share the value of 4-H and update them about the work 4-H has been doing in Colleton County. 4-H members Austin Murdaugh, Harper Garcia, and Brystol Williams prepared a short speech sharing why 4-H was important to them, followed by a general update by the 4-H Agent on the number of youth 4-H has reached since September of 2023. Council learned that five Blue Ribbon Riders 4-H Club members qualified to participate in Southern Regionals due to scores earned at the 4-H State Horse Show and the number of members participating in individual livestock and Healthy Lifestyles programs. As projects were mentioned individually, students raised their hands to indicate participation. Several members participated in more than one project. It was also noted that 586 students have participated in 4-H school enrichment programs.  The council was pleased and had several positive comments about the student speeches and the work that 4-H is doing in Colleton County.
