Fifty-one Missouri 4-H teens embarked upon the eighth annual 4-H Equine Career and Horse Industry Tour in late May 2014 traveling to destinations in Kansas, Nebraska, Wyoming and Colorado.
Eight Ray County 4-H youth were a part of the group. They were: Emily Henderson, Olivia Kincaid, Shawn Marrant, Carolyn Parsons, Kalynn Persell, Drew Rohlfs, Lydia Russell and Kaitlyn Zimmerman.
Missouri 4-H members from throughout the state participated in the 4-H Public Speaking Academy June 17-18.
Twenty young people gathered at Central Methodist University in Fayette with the goal of developing public speaking skills.
Allie Renfro, Ray County 4-H member, participated in this workshop, along with other 4-H club members from Missouri. Allie is the daughter of Shari and Jonathon Renfro of Richmond and is a member of the Millville 4-H Club.
