Emily Comer, Clark County 4-H: The Dennis Goodman Grant allowed Emily Comer from District 4 to work with 4-H Agents in her district to plan and implement the District 4-H Middle School Leadership Academy. The experience started with the 4-H Middle School Retreat where 4-H middle school students developed leadership skills and had the opportunity to connect with others. Classes included leadership exploration with the Kentucky 4-H President, breaking barriers, public speaking, and developing 4-H achievement applications. A total of 106 individuals attended the event, 90 middle schoolers and teen volunteers were actively engaged in the event. The group also had the opportunity to participate in a service project where they created 50 blankets that will be delivered to the Markey Cancer Center at the University of Kentucky. Thank you, Emily Comer and District 4 for taking your leadership skills and creating action!
