4-H state leaders gather for 2019 We Lead Conference

A big day for 4-H student leaders from across Louisiana at UL-Lafayette today as the group got together for its 2019 We Lead conference.

The event let’s students serving on 4H state leadership boards meet and discuss projects.

“These are the ones who have really excelled at their parish level, and also at the state level so they enjoyed this time to get together with their co-hearts, learn new leadership skills, and really build those relationships that last a lifetime for them,” Associate Vice President 4-H Program Leader, Toby Lepley.

Louisiana 4-H State President Tay Moore says the program allows him to develop his leadership skills while helping the community.

“…from being in this program I have been able to converse with many new people, and I have been able to reach my family, and my community, and help the state.”

4-H is short for head, heart, hands and health. The organization originally begun as an agriculturally focused program.  4-H now includes STEM fields for more than 7 million kids across the country.
