For the first time in almost two decades, the Chattooga County Extension Office now has two extension agents.  Zach White has been named a 4-H Extension Agent working at the Chattooga County Extension Office.

White is a native of Chattooga County and earned his B.S. degree in Early Childhood Education from the University of West Georgia.  He spent time in the classroom with fourth and fifth graders teaching reading and writing.

White grew up in the 4-H program in Chattooga County and has long been an active community member.  In his new role as 4-H Agent, White says that he is hoping to provide opportunities for the youth of Chattooga County like he was given when he was involved in Chattooga County’s 4-H program.   His goal is to integrate more technology into the current program.

Chattooga County has a large and active 4-H program with students in every school in both the Trion City and Chattooga County School Systems.
