Leon County 4-H Council Visits TDA

Texas is fortunate to have many youth leadership and development programs, and 4-H is certainly one of the best. This week, a group of 4-H'ers from Leon County stopped by my office with their extension agents, Wendy and Tommy Neyland, as well as Leon County Judge Byron Ryder.

I represented Leon County when I first became a state representative back in 1995,and that’s when I first worked with Tommy Neyland, an FFA teacher during those days, and with Judge Ryder who was then Mayor of Buffalo. It is so good to see today’s leaders investing in their young people to cultivate leaders for the future.

Texas will be in good hands as these young students become adult leaders themselves.
