Ambassador Spotlight

I would like to start introducing our Ambassadors each month.  Our Ambassador program is made of up of 21 7th grade and older youth that have decided to take the next big leap into becoming leaders for our 4-H program.  These are exceptional youth who really take pride in working hard, promoting 4-H and having fun together. Want to become an Ambassador or find out more information about it?  Contact Mari Jo at the Extension office or come to our next Ambassador meeting on Friday, November 17th at 6:30.  We meet at the Extension Office
