The entire Agrilife staff has always played a major role in youth programs, but now the responsibilities are much more.”The program is going to continue,” Gulley said. “You try to work with volunteers, try to work with your club leaders and that type thing to try to make the program continue.”Asha mom, a former 4 H member herself, has two other children waiting in the wings to take the 4 H oath.”Involvement is extremely important and to support the kids and help with all their projects,” volunteer Laurie Fuller said.Important because the program is building the leaders of tomorrow. It working for Asha who has a favorite part of being in 4 H.”Leadership,” Asha said. “I like feeling important.””The quality I noticed is mainly the want to, the drive and striving to do better all the time,” Agrilife agent Crispen Skinner said.Next week, members will learn not how to feed goats, but how to feed hundreds of people at a 4 H fish fry. The show season starts next month. The fundraiser will help clubs with expenses.Each step along the way Asha helps Lady learn what expected. With community support, 4 H can do the same for generations of kids to come.BreakingLufkin PD: Missing 87 year old man foundLufkin PD: Missing 87 year old man foundUpdated: Wednesday, March 14 2018 9:12 PM EDT2018 03 15 01:12:34 GMTThe Lufkin Police Department says an 87 year old that went missing Wednesday afternoon has been found.The Lufkin Police Department says an 87 year old that went missing Wednesday afternoon has been found.Pi Day celebrations spread across East TexasPi Day celebrations spread across East TexasUpdated: Wednesday, March 14 2018 7:09 PM EDT2018 03 14 23:09:56 GMTAcross East Texas many are celebrating National Pi Day, the irrational number including the owners as Marco’s Pizza.
