Meet Your 2016-2017 State 4-H Council Officers
State 4-H Council President, Alea Hunsucker, Davidson County
My name is Alea Hunsucker and I am currently serving as the North Carolina 4-H State Council President. I am from Davidson county within the North Central District and have been involved in 4-H since I was nine years old. Over those seven years, I have been involved in several project areas- some of which include: 4-H presentations, AIRE, citizenship and community service, horticulture identification and judging, STEM, electricity and alternative energy, and 4-H shooting sports. In my free time, I enjoy traveling and spending time with my pets and family. One of my favorite things about 4-H is the diversity of 4-H programs and projects displayed across our beautiful state and so I look forward to meeting you all and hearing how 4-H has impacted you as a person. I know for a fact that I wouldn’t be nearly the person I am today without 4-H, and you all inspire me to make my best better every day.
