4-H Memories

You're one of 25 million Americans who share a unique bond; you were a 4-H member. Each 4-H alum has their own unique story. Whether it's spending the summer at 4-H camp, conquering your fears of public speaking, leading your club as an officer, traveling the world as an exchange member, competing at the county fair, or working with your 4-H club leaders; your 4-H memories helped make you the person you are today.

The mission of the Illinois 4-H Alumni Association is to create a lifelong, statewide community of 4-H alumni and provide increased opportunities for meaningful engagement in order to increase awareness, pride, participation, volunteerism, and philanthropic commitment to Illinois 4-H.

Sam Eathington's connection to agriculture started young growing up on a grain and livestock farm in west-central Illinois. "4-H gave me an opportunity to learn more about the science behind the farm," Sam said. "Although I grew up on farm, exposure to new people and elements of agriculture fostered a passion that I still apply in my work today." FINISH THE STORY HERE
