Members of 4H have a wide variety of projects and activities to choose from both in the club and at the County Fair. The ample opportunities provide members like Mercedes Holmes a fun way to learn new skills and engage in the community.
Learning about the organization at the age of 8, Mercedes was drawn to join when her friend told her how fun 4H can be. Her mother, Jodi Holmes, was more than happy to support the decision to join a club she had enjoyed herself in her youth.
Now entering her senior year at Minden High School, Mercedes has been a member of 4H for nine years. She has held club positions of secretary and president in the K.C. Kids 4H Club in the past and enjoys working with the other members of her club on group projects.
