What is 4-H to you? What do you think it is for everyone else in our community? I am a Casey County Middle School student. I just heard about the chance that the Casey County District Board would be ending Jan Atwood's position. Ever since I moved to Casey County I have been involved with the 4-H program. It was something that I could do to try to get involved in more activities. Jan was there.
I brought up this issue to my language arts teacher. She said that she thought the 4-H program is great. She said that there was once a movie theater, a bowling alley, and a couple of parks where she spent time when she was a teenager, but they're gone now.
I asked if I could discuss it with my class. She told me the last ten minutes of class were mine. I stood in front of the class and asked who had been in a 4-H program. Every single person raised a hand. Some of the programs that we discussed were 4-H camp, farm safety day, the teen club, shooting sports, reality store, and an art poster competition set up at the apple festival.
