4-H and You

Monday, October 26, 2009

The Youth and 4-H Committee is an integral part of Cherokee County 4-H. The Committee helps with coordinating the county program, assists in planning and conducting educational activities, develops policies, interprets rules and regulations, and assesses the needs of youth in the county.

Youth are also encouraged to join this committee and are appointed from at-large positions for a term of one year.

The Youth and 4-H Committee has many responsibilities. They help plan and assist with many 4-H activities, such as the Cherokee County Fair, Awards Ceremony, and the Beef Weigh-In.

This committee is made up of representatives from all areas of Cherokee County. Ideally there are two members from each school district in Cherokee County, with four members from the Cherokee School District.

The Aurelia School District is represented by Jeanette Hinkeldey and Janet Sullivan. River Valley is represented by Jerry Ebert and is looking for a second person. The Marcus and the Meriden-Cleghorn area are unrepresented at this time. The Cherokee School District representatives are Sally Wilkie, Earl Cresap, and Val Cedar. We are looking for one more person from the Cherokee District as well.

The Youth and 4-H Committee also has representatives from other committees. The Cherokee County Extension Council's representative is Jack Shea. Dave Medick and Christy Alquist represent the Cherokee County Fair Board.

As you can see we are currently looking for several representatives to join our Youth & 4-H Committee. There is only a small commitment of time. We meet on the third Monday of the month at 7:30 p.m. If you would like to serve on the committee or know of someone who would, please contact Brenda Medick at the Extension Office at 225-6196.

If you would like to know more about 4-H and the various 4-H programs available, please contact Brenda Medick at the Cherokee County Extension Office at 225-6196.

Extension programs are available to all without regard to race, color, national origin, religion, sex, age, or disability.
