Macoupin County 4-H teens put leadership to the test
March 20, 2017
Macoupin County 4-H members, Haleigh Hester of Staunton and Lydia Fulton of Worden, represented Macoupin County 4-H during the 4-H Teen Leadership Conference in Decatur, IL on Jan 6 - 7. The pair learned valuable leadership skills to better prepare them for the future.
Leadership comes in many different forms and Hester and Fulton were able to test their skills throughout the conference. The conference focuses on skills that are not only useful for 4-H, but also for educational advancement, scholarship applications, and future careers. They also bring the knowledge and skills they developed back to Macoupin County to assist with the 4-H teen leadership group.
