The Lifelong Impact of 4-H

Stories from Texas

Heartwarming, surprising, and inspirational: this collection of thirty-one stories from families and individuals whose lives have been touched by 4-H covers more than a century of history in Texas. It traces the organization from its agricultural origins at the turn of the twentieth century to its present-day status as a training ground for leaders and professionals in fields ranging from the NFL to the US Senate. Told in the conversational voices of real-life participants, these essays relate an engaging story of the perseverance, dedicated work ethic, humility, and compassion that 4-H instills in its members.

Including more than thirty historic photographs, the impact of “Head, Heart, Hands, and Health” weaves together these tales of familial support, triumphs, and disappointments, and the educational force that is Texas 4-H.

TOBY L. LEPLEY is associate professor and assistant state 4-H leader for operations, Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service. MARTHA E. COUCH is professor and associate director for 4-H and youth emerita, Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service, and has been inducted into the National 4-H Hall of Fame.
