The District 7 and District 10 4-H Leadership Lab was held in Brownwood on June 25-27. The theme was “Don’t Be A Turtle ... Get Out of Your Shell.”
The county council officers and many members of Wilson County 4-H attended the camp and learned about ways to get out of your shell, public speaking and interview skills, career exploration, tying it all together, and more! There were also elections for the district councils and business meetings, along with dances every night!
It was a great time and we are proud to say that Wilson County won the “Rohde Award”! This is an award that is given to the county with the most participation in district events. It is also the first year the award has been offered, so the group was super excited to be the first recipient! Everyone that attended had a great time.
