Written By Editor on 3/5/14 | 3/5/14

ALBANY, 03/04/14 – State Senator James L. Seward (R/C/I–Oneonta) Tuesday welcomed Schoharie County 4-H member Emma Wegner to Albany as part of the 79th annual 4-H Capital Days.

“As a former 4-H member, I am pleased to see the program continuing to offer our young people a well-rounded education on topics like agriculture, leadership and life skills,” said Senator Seward.  “Ms. Wegner and her fellow 4-H members are our future leaders.  Meeting with them and providing some insight into Albany’s daily proceedings is a welcome highlight.”

Ms. Wegner and students from other area 4-H chapters met with Senator Seward during a legislative breakfast, quizzing him on pending legislation, local issues of importance and the inner workings of the state senate.

In December of 2013, Senator Seward was named a Distinguished 4-H Alumnus, the first documented New York honoree to be listed in the national directory.

“The ideals I learned while a 4-H member helped give birth to my interest in public service and continue to foster my passion each and every day,” added Senator Seward.

4-H, a program of Cornell Cooperative Extension, brings students, volunteer leaders and staff from across the state to Albany each year for a two day conference.  Students spend time witnessing the state legislature in session, touring the Capitol and learning about history and state government.
