Guest Blogger: National 4-H Council Youth Trustee Tess Hammock

Congressman Scott, Tess Hammock

In November, while in Washington, D.C. to attend a National 4-H Council Board of Trustees meeting, I traveled to Capitol Hill to meet with the Congressman.  We had a great  conversation about 4-H and the importance of youth development organizations.  I told Congressman Scott, even as a college sophomore at the University of Georgia, I was still very involved in 4-H and even spoke with his staff about a possible internship.  Little did I know his staff would reach out months later and invite me to testify before Congress.
