Wildcat District Agents Become CPR Certified

We are so grateful to Sharolyn Jackson and Sandy Proctor for giving their time to provide CPR/AED Training for our Wildcat District staff! CPR is a skill that is incredibly important to have, but hope you never have to use. Some staff members are being trained for the first time, the first time in a long time, or wanting to brush up their skills after their certification has expired.

Wildcat District Education Foundation Inaugural Gala

Wildcat District Education Foundation has officially hosted their First Annual Gala! This night would not have come together without the efforts from many individuals including Wildcat District staff, board members, vendors, sponsors and donors gathering for a purpose to ensure every child who wishes to participate in 4-H and all of the activities that come with it, have the means to do so. We had an amazing night of raising awareness of the true meaning of being involved in 4-H - learning lifelong skills and creating lifelong connections - which far surpasses "the county fair." Striving to make the best better. Thank you, thank you, thank you to those who donated live and silent auction items, purchased live and silent auction items, sponsored and donated toward the event, provided the location, catered the meal and donated their time. We truly appreciate it.
