4-H Senior Feature

Micah Jarrard, of Washington, is the son of Robert and Dorcas Jarrard.

He is home-schooled and is a member of the Washington Hustlers.

His projects include bird house, bat box, squirrel feeder, boot jack, chicken nesting boxes, gun rack, refinished child?s metal rocking chair, fountain pond, garden bench, tack box, rebuilt a motorcycle, and boar goat raising.

Micah?s special 4-H memory/highlight was rebuilding a Suzuki motorcycle. It went to the Iowa State Fair and received a blue ribbon.

?Others should join 4-H to build skills in working with others as a team and enjoy the social interaction and friendly competition,? Micah said. ?There are many opportunities to learn more about things a person is interested in, whether it is a hands-on project or caring for livestock.?

His other activities include raising a hear of boar goats, working on his family?s farm and being youth group president at his church.

His future plans are to farm and raise his own livestock.
