|4-H alums credit youth program with launching human sciences careers|
As Iowa teens this week participate in the Iowa 4-H Youth Conference at Iowa State University, they’ll pledge their heads to clearer thinking, their hearts to greater loyalty, their hands to larger service, and their health to better living, not only for themselves, but also their communities and beyond.
For a number of 4-H alumni, that commitment to head, heart, hands, and health led them to pursue a career in human sciences.
“4-H really set a foundation for my life,” said Eulanda Sanders, Iowa State’s Donna R. Danielson Professor in Textiles and Clothing and the College of Human Sciences’ equity adviser. “It’s a fabulous organization. Often, when I have 4-H’ers in class, it’s evident. They possess attention for detail, good communication skills, inquisitiveness, and a willingness to take risks.”
