FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. — Arkansas 4-H announced the new state officers during the annual
4-H State O-Rama held in Fayetteville on the University of Arkansas campus.
The officers campaigned throughout the summer at various events, including Teen Leader
Conference, District O-Rama and State O-Rama.
The 2019-2020 Arkansas 4-H State Officers are:
Serving as a 4-H State Officer can help prepare students for their future in a number
of ways, said Lori Canada, State Officer Advisor. The skills they learn during their
year as officers will be a basis for their confidence and poise in any endeavor they.
The Arkansas 4-H State Officer team is comprised of a President, First-Vice President,
three District Vice-Presidents, Secretary and a Reporter. Each district elected a
representative for the Arkansas 4-H State Officer team during the District O-Rama
events held in June.
4-H State officers also get the chance to travel the state while working on events
and their skills.
“They will be representing Arkansas 4-H throughout the state,” Canada said. “ Some
specific skills that the officers will grow in will be public speaking, interacting
with sponsors and administrators of various organizations.”
“Each year the officer team has their own personality and they grow and develop throughout
the year,” Canada said. “This year, the officers are very collaborative and have an
understanding of the obligations that are ahead of them.”
The 2018-2019 officers handed over responsibilities to the incoming officers during
the State O-Rama closing assembly on July 25.
“The experiences that they will have throughout this upcoming year will be with them
for the rest of their lives,” Canada said.
