4-H in the Media



MacKenzie Loesch of Russellville recently returned from Columbia where she was elected as a Regional Representative to the Missouri State 4-H Council. The election took place as part of the 72nd annual State 4-H Congress, May 31 through June 2, which was attended by 240 Missouri teens.

State 4-H Council members are elected by their peers at this event.  These teens serve as ambassadors for Missouri 4-H and MU Extension, serving as the voice of youth in policy and programming. Last year, over 22,000 Missouri children and youth participated in 4-H clubs, and and one of every five Missourians were reached by a Missouri 4-H program.

MacKenzie is a senior at Russellville High School and an active member of the Stringtown-Corinth 4-H Club. She says, "The best decision I ever made was to run for a regional representative! The most important thing I have learned while being on State 4-H Council is that the other people on the council become your second family. You may not feel like they are your family; but at the end of the 4-H year and when you say goodbye to the retiring representativess and officers, that's when it hits you...We ARE family. I have made so many good friends while being on Council it's crazy. For the coming year, I hope to be going to the different counties I represent, talking to them about all the great opportunities in 4-H while representing the 4-H members at events."
