Each month we highlight an Ohio 4-H alum. They have amazing stories to share, from their personal experience in 4-H to how they have given back to the program. This month we feature Callia Barwick, a Mahoning County 4-H alumna.
Callia is a 19-year-old student at Ohio Wesleyan University, where she is studying pre-law and history. She was a 4-H member for 13 years in Mahoning County, showing horses, dogs, and goats, along with completing many other projects. Callia was selected as the Mahoning County 4-H Queen and was inducted into the Ohio 4-H Teen Hall of Fame. She also served as a 4-H Health Hero and was a member of the Ohio 4-H State Fashion Board. Callia attended the 4-H National Healthy Living Summit delivering remarks to the assistant secretary of education, was a part of a national 4-H ad campaign for sponsors, and represented 4-H and the partnership with JOANN.
