Continued from pg. 1C "It's all about teaching kids the basics of , Coltharp said. 'Tknd giving back to others." Coltharp said 4-H is structured to help the kids and mentor them in any direction they go, whether it is by raising livestock, public speaking or other skill projects. One example was when members of the Buda Club encouraged a 7-year-old girl to partici- pate in meetings when she wanted. "She would stand there with a senior officer while they talked.., now she Hill talk in front of 150 people," Betty said. "Her room came up and said, I never would have thought my child would speak in front of people." Speaking opportunities aJ :t developing a good work ethic is all part in preparing students for the real world, Betty said. After bathing and walking each pig for 30 minutes, Madison worked on her 4-H record book.

The book is structured like a college application and most members solely use it for applying. "I'm seeing now the benefit beside the respon- sibility and the hard work," Betty said. "It's beneficial to have had the opportunities she's had with 4-H to help her with the next things that come in life."
