Phelps Discusses History of 4-H with MPBN

Lisa Phelps, University of Maine Cooperative Extension program administrator, spoke with the Maine Public Broadcasting Network about 4-H for an article on the organization’s 100th birthday. Phelps said even though technology has advanced since the organization’s start, the mission of the UMaine Cooperative Extension’s youth development program remains the same. From the start, the program aimed to help plant new knowledge into old homesteads by teaching children the latest science. The radio station Q 106.5 also included an article previewing the program’s annual awards banquet on Oct. 19.
