As the school season begins gearing up, so does a new year for Jones County 4-H.

It serves the entire fifth grade and is optional for all students from sixth to twelfth grade, including students who are homeschooled. Jones County 4-H Extension Associate Brennan Jackson started planning for the year with upcoming school club meetings, saying he began thinking of educational experiences to offer 4-H’ers.

He remembered back to The Jones County News story on the Piedmont Wildlife Refuge, and realized, “There is more liberty to have guest speakers and such for meetings outside of the school.”

And now after contacting them, Jackson believes the Refuge will be a great hands-on experience for club meetings.

Still, he is always excited about the on-campus standard meetings where classes reinforce teachers’ curriculums, such as Get Your Game On. According to Jackson, this “teaches researching, writing and public speaking.”
