Life Lessons Learned from 4-H and FFA
By Gwynn Stewart, Community Development Educator – Ohio State University Extension: Noble County
One day around the Extension office lunch table, my co-workers and I were discussing our experiences in 4-H and FFA. We discussed club activities, The Ohio State Fair, of course, and lessons that we learned. There are seven staff in our office. We each participated in either 4-H or FFA and some did both.
With nearly 40 years in combined 4-H-er experience and another 16 years in FFA, there are a plethora of good memories and lessons learned! Some of those shared include memories from club activities, the State Fair, showing animals at the county fair and of course, the Caldwell, Ohio, Fireman’s Festival 4-H parade.
