4-H Citizenship Washington Focus delegates learn from experiencing nation’s capital

A 4-H Citizenship Washington Focus delegation traveled to Washington, D.C., June 26–July 3. Forty-eight delegates from thirteen Michigan counties along with Michigan State University Extension staff members Connie Lange, Renee Applegate, Mark Williams and Jan Kreiner, chaperones and assistants experienced a week full of learning by doing. The group immersed themselves in U.S. history and current national government when they toured the nation’s capital and Gettysburg Battlefield and Museum, participated in town hall debates and met with senators Debbie Stabenow and Carl Levin and individual representatives. Connie Lange summarized it simply: “Awesome program and awesome group!”
