4-H Foundation Executive Director Blayne Arthur Highlights the 2016 RoundupThu, 07 Jul 2016 16:34:29 CDT
Slowly but surely - thatís how Oklahoma 4-H Foundation Executive Director Blayne Arthur describes how she is settling into her new role after moving from the Oklahoma Department of Agriculture, Food & Forestry.
Taking the helm only last month, Arthur continues to explore the ins and outs of the non-profit as she and the organization begin preparations for their premiere event of the year, the Oklahoma State 4-H Roundup. The event, happening July 27-29 on the Oklahoma State University campus, will host more than 900 4-H students and instructors who will participate in this showcase of leadership and success.
ďItís a great time to recognize all the efforts of those 4-H members, present scholarships, we have a banquet where members can meet several of the donors who contribute to the foundation. Itís kind of the top-tier event for 4-H here in Oklahoma,Ē Arthur said.
With scholarships being a relatively new feature in the foundationís work, Roundup offers donors the chance to meet with members in person and see them in action. Arthur hopes that by interacting with members, donors will witness the value of their contributions to 4-H.
