Thank you 4-H Capital Experience, Young People's Citizenship Seminar, Kettunen Center training, Exploration Days, the parliamentary procedure I learned and subsequently led to guide monthly 4-H meetings, development learned through entering exhibits at the Fowlerville Fair ... thank you for inspiring a sense of personal responsibility and leadership in me that helped form my leadership foundation, as well as my strong desire to give back to my community. These are the traits that have undoubtedly led to my success within GE, as well as throughout my career. Michigan 4-H Leadership Development training opportunities cannot happen without public support. Every year I have elected to share my own resources and time to support 4-H. I am thrilled ... honored ... to enhance my own giving through your generous support. Your contributions will fund scholarships to send more Michigan 4-Hers to the quality leadership development training that Michigan State University Extension offers throughout the state. Thank you, Mom and Dad, for introducing me to 4-H early, Crain's for the chance to give back in a bigger way, and 4-H for helping me become the leader I am today. And thank each of you for your support. You are helping me realize a dream of giving back to 4-H and my Community in a larger way! 4-H Pledge I pledge my head to clearer thinking, my heart to greater loyalty, my hands to larger service, and my health to better living, for my club, my community, my country, and my world.
