Local 4-H members took part in Leadership Day and 4-H Day at the Capitol Feb. 3 and got to meet with their representatives from the state House and Senate. Students from Pike County who attended included Elizabeth Hanson, Georgia Hanson, Lara Straub, Kaylan Stanley and Jana Stanojevic. Elizabeth Hanson was honored for her service as the Vice President of Georgia 4-H and for mastering in the Dean’s Award Communications and the Arts. ’This annual event honors 4-Hers who have proven their leadership abilities as they serve in various 4-H leadership positions,’ said Pike County 4-H educator Penny Cosper. ‘They represented Pike County 4-H and while there they had the opportunity to visit and interact with legislators and community leaders as well as observe the general assembly in session.’ The 4-Hers took part in a luncheon hosted by the Georgia 4-H Foundation Board of Trustees and met with legislators during the event. ’I think 4-H Day at the Capitol helps students to understand the workings of our state government,’ said Cosper. ‘I thought it was a great opportunity and maybe some students will want to become involved in state government in the future.’For more, contact Cosper at firstname.lastname@example.org.
