Homer High School student, Brianna Smith, attended Camp Grant Walker this summer in Pollock, Louisiana. She served as a 4-H Junior Leader at the camp. Her responsibilities included leading group activities, supervising campers, and ensuring the enjoyment of students attending the camp. 4-H Junior Leaders serve younger 4-Hers as counselors at camps and events, and participate in various service learning opportunities throughout the school year.

4-H L.E.G.O.S for Life
Amanda Smith-4-H has a goal this year for all the students. It is for the youth to learn and apply key life skills for success that will help with key ideas and details for kindergarten through 5th grade. Also, 4-H helps with working on text types, purposes, production, and distribution of writing. Speaking and listening will also be addressed by using comprehension and collaboration. Students will improve their presentation of knowledge and ideas, as well as their knowledge of language, vocabulary acquisition, and use. Course materials for 4-H include grades 6-12 text types and purposes, presentation of knowledge, and ideas. For language improvement, kids will learn the knowledge of language, vocabulary acquisition, and use, and the production and distribution of writing.
