A lot of people think of agriculture when they think of Georgia’s 4H program.  While agriculture plays a big and an important role in the 4H Program, Chattooga County Extension Agent Rebecca Thomas says that the students involved in the program learn a lot about life and leadership skills. 

Chattooga County School and Trion City School fifth and sixth graders in the 4H Program have completed “Project Achievement” in their classrooms at the end of last year.  Those students will be going to Georgia Highlands College at the end of January for their district competitions.  They have prepared a five minute speech, demonstration or performance to present at the competition.  The students will be in competition with 13 other counties on January 22. 

Chattooga County Extension Agent Rebecca Thomas spoke with AM 1180 in a Newsmakers Interview program that you can hear coming up on Wednesday morning at 8:15 AM and again Wednesday afternoon following the afternoon Trading Post program.
