Some of South Carolina’s brightest young people, including Kershaw County 4-Hers, recently visited the state capital to meet with legislators and share the impact 4-H has had on their lives and their communities.  South Carolina 4-H continues to teach and inspire young people to do great things.  Speakers for the event were State Superintendent of Education Molly Spearman and Commissioner of Agriculture Hugh Weathers, whom are both alumni of 4-H.

Members of the Kershaw County 4-H Horse Club and Kershaw Rabbit Club visited with Kershaw County Representatives Laurie Slade Funderburk and William Wheeler during the Legislative Day.  They shared the value of their 4-H experiences and thanked them for support of 4-H in the county and state.

4-H is a community of young people across America who are learning leadership, citizenship, and life skills.  The South Carolina 4-H Youth Development Program uses a learn-by-doing approach, the involvement of caring adults, and the knowledge and resources of Clemson University and SC State University and the land grant university system to empower youth to become healthy, productive, and contributing members of society.

Clemson University Cooperative Extension Service offers its programs to people of all ages, regardless of race, color, gender, religion, national origin, disability, political beliefs, sexual orientation, marital or family status and is an equal opportunity employer.
