Tyra Stephens who was elected last year to serve on the Southeast District 4-H Senior Board served in a leadership role for this event. She helped plan the event and presided over assemblies and the Senior Banquet. This has been a tremendous opportunity for Tyra.

Ty Poole was elected to serve on the Southeast District 4-H Senior Board. Being a member of this board will give Ty leadership roles in planning events and activities for the 40 county Southeast District.
