This year the Westmoreland County 4-H Teen Leadership Council (TLC), in addition to their regular business meetings, is focused on career exploration. The 4-H Council is comprised of representatives from different county 4-H Clubs. They help to plan county events, and have more opportunities for leadership and teambuilding. The members attend the TLC meetings and then disseminate the information they learn back to their clubs. It is a vital role in keeping the 4-H Clubs in the loop, and allowing members to make the most of their 4-H experience.

At the last meeting, Penn State Extension Agronomist Rachel Milliron taught members what it is to be an Agronomist by doing a hands on activity to identify weeds. She spoke about her role in helping farmers get the most out of their crops, and other tasks she completes on a daily basis. 

If you or anyone in your 4-H Club is interested in joining the 4-H Teen Leadership Council, contact Lyndsey Androstic at the Extension Office (724) 837-1402.
