Though teenager Gretta Gooch is just a senior in high school, she is no stranger to being a leader. Her list of leadership positions seems miles long.
This summer, Gooch added another position to that list.
On June 12, Gooch was elected to be the secretary of the Kentucky 4-H Teen Council, a position she will hold for a year.
In addition to her new position, Gooch also acts as president of the Boyle County 4-H Teen Club, reporter for the livestock club and member of the Boyle County 4-H Council - and those are only her leadership positions as part of 4-H.
Gooch's road to becoming state secretary was a long one. She began planning for her campaign long before the conference.
"In March, I sent in an application for the position. In April, I was interviewed and the committee slated me for a campaign. In April and June, I started getting my campaign stuff together," Gooch said.
