Southern Area 4-H Leaders Forum



The Northeast Clark County Cooperative Extension hosted the first ever Southern Area    4-H Leaders Forum on March 4th and 5th, 2016! There were some great adult leadership workshops, a pulled pork dinner, and lots of fun activities for the kids. This Leaders Forum was such a success, it has inspired other areas to plan/host their own Leaders Forums. 🙂

We would like to express gratitude to our presenters!  We began with Carrie Stark, the Nevada 4-H State Program Director presenting the “Future of 4-H”, “Leaders Council Roles and Expectations/Staff Support” and “Working with Different Personalities”. Then, Karen Best the Clark County 4-H Program Officer, shared some great team building insights. Joy Belonga then spoke with the adult leaders about “Finding the Spark in Youth”.   Marguerite Clark, a Las Vegas Community Based Instructor, continued the forum by giving insights regarding “Youth and Adult Partnerships”. The last day,  Lacey Sproul-Tom the Northeast Clark County 4-H Clark County 4-H Program Officer, presented “Animal Science”, “Citizenship/Leadership”, “Teen Leadership and Adult Volunteerism”. To finish off the Forum our own Carol Bishop, the Northeast Clark County Extension Educator, went through information regarding 4-H Club Legalities.

We would also like to show our appreciation to our Local 4-H Ambassadors! During all of this presenting and learning our Local 4-H Ambassadors were able to volunteer watching the younger children. (This helped to free up our Adult Leaders so that all of the presentations offered could be attended.)

Lastly, a BIG thank you to the Moapa Valley Rotary Club, for their service! They cooked/served breakfast to all of the 4-H Leaders/families who traveled to Logandale for the training. (The breakfast burritos were a huge hit!)


If you have any questions or are interested in 4-H, please contact Lacey Sproul-Tom at 702-397-2604 ex.2 or
