providing experience-based education to youngsters throughout the Lone Star State; and
WHEREAS, This admirable program, which seeks to provide a learning experience for the
whole child, including head, heart, hands, and health, helps young Texans to acquire knowledge,
develop life skills, and form attitudes to enable them to become self-directed, productive, and
contributing members of our society; and
WHEREAS, Its more than 550,000 urban, suburban, and rural youth participants, ranging
in age from eight to nineteen, hail from diverse ethnic and socioeconomic backgrounds and truly
represent a cross-section of the state; and

today were it not for the service of its more than 22,000 volunteers, who have given generously of
their time, talents, energies, and resources to the youth of Texas; and
WHEREAS, Throughout its proud history, the 4-H program has developed positive role
models for countless Texans and through its innovative and inspiring programs, continues to build
character and to instill the values that have made our state strong and great; now, therefore, be it
RESOLVED, That the Hopkins County Commissioner’s Court, hereby designates
October 1-7, 2017 as National 4-H Week in Texas and commend the 4-H Youth Development
Program of the Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service and the many men and women who have
