Special 4-H memory/highlight:  One of my favorite 4-H memories is being a part of the Spring Preview Cattle Show committee for County Council the past few years.

?Through 4-H you can do anything you set your sights on; anyone can do anything they want to within 4-H,? says Stalder. ?4-H gives anyone the chance to learn invaluable skills that, when looked upon later, will help you realize the immense impact the program has on you. Through 4-H I?ve learned a large number of skills such as better communication skills, the value of hard work, and teamwork. Without 4-H I most certainly would?ve never transformed into the person I am today, nor would I have met so many people I am close to.?
