ATLANTA (February 5, 2018) | Sen. Mike Dugan (R – Carrollton) recognized Thursday, February 1, 2018, as 4-H Day at the state Capitol by welcoming members of Georgia’s 4-H Clubs.
“It’s always such a pleasure to see young leaders come to the Capitol to be recognized for the work they’re doing in their communities and our state,” said Sen. Dugan. “It was especially great to see 4-H Club members from Carrollton and Paulding County among the groups that visited. I was able to spend time with both groups, discussing what was happening in the legislature and answering their questions. I always look forward to having them at the Capitol and hearing about the outstanding work they are doing in our communities. The mission of 4-H not only encompasses education and classroom initiatives, but also the physical execution of projects to help conserve our communities. It was an honor to have members and mentors of this program visit, speak and be presented with a resolution to recognize the work they put in to keeping our state prosperous.”
Georgia’s 4-H Clubs strive to build leaders in our communities through hands-on learning experiences that emphasize work in environmental and agricultural awareness and conservation initiatives. Members of these clubs address physical challenges in Georgia and build on their education in health, communication and overall citizenship. These stewards of our state were recognized through Senate Resolution 672, which acknowledges Mason McClintock, president of the state 4-H Club, Arch D. Smith, director of the University of Georgia Cooperative Extension and the 2017-2018 4-H Leadership Team.
