Zach Cryer Chosen for 4-H National Conference

Zach Cryer is going places -- literally and figuratively. 

The Benton High School sophomore was surprised in class recently with the news he is one of only four students chosen statewide to represent Louisiana as a 4-H National Conference Delegate for the next two years. 

Cryer will spend a year learning about social causes that impact Louisiana and how to effectively advocate for the 4-H program and community causes he cares about. He will also travel to Washington D.C. in March for the National 4-H Conference, which is considered the pinnacle experience in 4-H civic engagement, providing members the chance to connect with others and develop ideas to lead change that impacts communities across the nation and world.
