Capitol gets real McCoy at 4-H Conference

(Continued)

TUTTLE —

McCoy will be a senior next year and is beginning to consider how she'll spend her time after high school, in college and beyond. While she said she doesn't really know what she'd like to pursue, 4-H and the National Conference has helped in her decision.

"I love talking to people and working with people on problems, but that's about the extent of what I know right now," McCoy said. "The main thing about 4-H is it's helped with my confidence. I was the typical shy kid, but when I began 4-H I started doing workshops and demonstrations. I also really enjoy mentoring. I never thought I'd be interested in something like teaching, but it's a great experience."

She said she is grateful for what the organization has done for her and wants to continue beyond 4-H council member status to become state president this summer.

"In my hometown, it doesn't seem like people are too fond of 4-H," McCoy said. "But, I don't think I could rise to that level in any other organization."
