Youth Spotlight


Meet Molly J. a member of the Cherry Clinton 4-H Club and part of the North St. Louis County Ambassadors. Recently she shared her experience in   4-H.

Nicole Kudrle: What project(s) are you focused on in 4-H currently?
The 4-H project I'm currently focused on is horses.

Nicole Kudrle: How is 4-H helping you grow leadership skills?
4-H is helping my leadership skills by participating in various 4-H activities in which I help plan and/or teach others about certain topics.  Plus I've served as an officer (Vice President) in a previous 4-H club and am currently serving as a 4-H Ambassador for our county.

Nicole Kudrle: How has 4-H helped you serve your community or make a difference for others?
4-H has given me opportunities to serve my community through activities such as leading and instructing 4-H horse clinics, setting up and selling horse merchandise at 4-H tack swaps, and helping plan upcoming events within my 4-H club.

Nicole Kudrle: What is your favorite 4-H experience from the past year?
My favorite 4-H experience would have to be when I went to the state 4-H horse show last year and ended up being a state champion in 2 events (showmanship and horsemanship). I also had lots of fun there with other people in my county, and I appreciated them being so supportive.  I also loved cheering on my fellow 4-Hers who competed down at state.

Nicole Kudrle: Why do you think other young people should join 4-H?
I think 4-H would be a great opportunity for younger people because a person can really learn a lot about a wide range of things from horses to robotics.  There are so many projects to get involved in and really there is something for everyone. Plus it's a great opportunity to meet some great life-long friends.
