Goochland 4-H Agriculture and Natural Resource Day is a 4-H program that was created as a Goochland High School senior project 5 years ago. As part of her Blue Ridge Virtual Governor’s School capstone project, Ms. Erin Henley – a 4-H member and GCPS student – wanted to leave behind a legacy for hundreds of elementary children.
Throughout her senior year, Erin and Ms. Jocelyn Dailey, 4-H Cooperative Extension, worked together to plan the inaugural event for 4th graders back in 2009. It has been resounding success every year since.
Thank you, Erin.
