April 14, 2014

National 4-H Council recognized U.S. Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers along with other congressional leaders and Congressional 4-H alumni during a 4-H Congressional Breakfast on Capitol Hill on April 9.
The breakfast, hosted by Sens. Saxby Chambliss (R-Ga.) and Debbie Stabenow (D-Mich.) and Reps. Tom Latham (R-Iowa) and Chris Van Hollen (D-Md), is designed to spotlight the importance of positive youth development programs in addressing urgent challenges facing America's youth and to thank Congress for its support of positive youth development through 4-H programs.
“We were thrilled to have such a great response from congressional leaders, including many who are 4-H alumni and know the power of positive youth development firsthand,” said National 4-H Council President and CEO Jennifer Sirangelo.
Nearly 250 people attended the breakfast, including leaders from 4-H, National Institute of Food and Agriculture at the United States Department of Agriculture, Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention, Cooperative Extension and land-grant universities, and 4-H youth.
