Learning about 4-H just got a little easier this year.

The first-ever "4-H Clover College" will be held Thursday at Collins Career Center at Getaway – for both youths and adults.

The college also takes the place of officer training, which is usually held about the same time in the spring, said Laura Jane Murphy, Lawrence County 4-H Extension agent.

"They’re going to learn just as much and it will be even more exciting," Ms. Murphy said.

This year, students and 4-H members have put together a welcoming skit.

"Everyone is welcome to spend an evening at 4-H Clover College," Ms. Murphy said. "4-H members, families and advisers can sharpen their pencils and receive a course on any subject that interests them."

Registration is at 6:45 a.m. Thursday, with a 7 p.m. welcome from the teen leaders. Class sessions begin at 7:15 p.m. at end by 8 p.m.

Sessions for adults include:

– Exciting Things for Cloverbuds, by Dr. Scott Scheer, State 4-H Specialist.

– How to Run Better Meetings, by Army Darnell, 4-H Agent, Athens County.

– Help! I Don’t Know Anything About …, by the 4-H Committee.
