Over the Thanksgiving weekend, Georgia College students Sophie Conerly, Sidney Parker, Rachel Chang, Hannah Kate Mulanax, Gigi Nicholl, Chris Clyde, Chloe Patterson, Ben Branch, Cole Gainey, & Madison Bowers presented at the National 4-H Congress in Atlanta. The National 4-H Congress hosts over 800 delegates from all over the country, representing most states and Puerto Rico.
Dr. Liz Speelman and Billy Copeland helped kick off the Congress with a "Getting Acquainted" session with all of the delegates on Friday November 29. The Georgia College students conducted four repeating mega-sessions called "Expanding Horizons through Group Development" with over 200 students in each session on Saturday November 30. Their planning in class this fall consisted of learning how to work with and manage large groups and develop teambuilding programs that were specifically focused on the outcomes of effective communication, respect for diversity, group decision-making, conflict management and group goal-setting.
In alumni news, the National 4-H Congress is planned and managed by Georgia College alumna and Foundation Board Member, Susan Stewart ('70) and her company S. Stewart and Associates. Georgia College was well represented!
