Surry County had four attendees for State 4-H Congress this year which included Sydney Tucker, Alyssa Johnson, Laken Williams, and Rebecca Cahall. This year’s 4-H Congress, held in Raleigh July 29-August 1, attracted more than 500 young people and their adult leaders for activities including presentations on a variety of subjects, leadership and citizenship training, service opportunities, officer elections and more. Through leadership workshops, the Hands to Service activity, and team building opportunities these youth gained skills and friendships that will last a lifetime.
