Joanne H

HCE, formerly known as Homemakers, has been part of my life since childhood. My mother not only was a 4-H clothing leader, she also was a member of the local Homemakers and took her turn at hosting the meetings in our home. Our entire family benefited from those programs.

I began my collegiate education at UW-Barron County and it was a terrific experience. Coming out of Cameron H.S. as a freshman, I was especially impressed by the attentiveness of the professors and quality of education.

I started as a student at UW-Fox Valley in 2006. I intended to pursue a degree in English or philosophy education, and soon discovered a deeper interest in science - leading to a degree in 6-12 science education.

Impact Story

Titus K

I joined 4-H as part of "what my family does." I enjoy the activities and club stuff, but what really draws me in is the Lego Club! I bring friends from school, too. We don't have this technology at school, or through any other outlet I have available to me.

Impact Story

Cassi M

I joined 4-H to be closer to my friends and to get out of my comfort zone. What I got out of it was so much more. I've made friends from my club, county, and all over on my trips. I've learned skills that I can use for the rest of my life.

Impact Story

Kendra P

I got started in 4-H through my siblings. I wanted to show rabbits, so we looked into it and started my journey! I have learned so many new things. I have met so many new people I would never have met if I wasn't in 4-H. I have learned how to be a leader and so much more. I love 4-H!

Bailee M

I started 4-H when I was 8 and I wasn't so sure about it. I went into a different club when I was in 4th grade and it was a lot different than my first club. In this club, I will be starting my ninth year in 4-H.
