Justin Shaw has recently joined the Clemson Extension Service as the 4-H agent for Kershaw County. Shaw will coordinate various programs and activities associated with 4-H. 

Shaw earned his bachelors degree from the Citadel in 2007 and recently graduated with a Masters in Educational Leadership from Lamar University.

“I am excited to become the next 4-H agent for Kershaw County,” Shaw said. “I am prepared to serve as a leader, as well as being committed to working cooperatively with other county and state staff to plan, implement, maintain and evaluate Extension education programs for county, region, and state adult and/or youth clientele. I feel that my passion for youth development and community involvement will transition well in a position as a County Extension Agent.”

Shaw said growing up he was an active member of both 4-H and the FFA, attending Camp Bob Cooper and participating in the tomato growing program, wildlife food plots and Barrow shows every year. 

“I showed at the Eastern Carolina Agriculture Fair in Florence and South Carolina State Fair in Columbia every year from elementary to high school,” he said. “While in high school, I held leadership roles in our FFA chapter, as well as being a participant with the soil judging and livestock judging teams. I began working on a tobacco farm at a very young age, and I learned the value of hard work that has carried on with me throughout my life. I have always enjoyed planting a garden every year for our family, as well as growing produce such as tomatoes, peanuts, or cucumbers to sell.”
