(Continued)

NEW CASTLE —

She is headed to Robert Morris University this fall. She believes her involvement in 4-H has helped prepare for the transition to college.

“The program helps you build connections, broaden your horizons, and it really helps change people into leaders,” she said.

Baker said she will age out of the program soon, because she will be 19 as of Jan. 1, which is the cutoff date to still be in the program. However, she still plans on being active with the 4-H.

“I owe a lot to the program so I’m obviously going to give back.”

She said there are always options to be leaders and volunteers. She also plans on coming back to chaperone and aid their statewide events.

“If you cut me open,” she said, “I’d bleed green and white.”
