Lawrence County 4-H receives a grant to support youth development programming – WBIW.com

BEDFORD – Premier Companies, headquartered in Seymour, has announced another $50,000 annual gift to support 4-H in Southeast Indiana, acknowledging the importance of 4-H youth development programming.
Lawrence County has received $5,575 to support agricultural-related youth development programs.
Harold Cooper, CEO of Premier Companies, is dedicated to inspiring the next generation of agri-business leaders. Premier Companies began in 1927 with the goal of providing energy and agricultural services in Indiana. Since then, the company has grown to reach multiple states and has become a strong supporter of rural youth.
Premier has been a generous sponsor of the Indiana 4-H Leadership Summit for the past few years and has been committed to supporting 4-H members directly through 4-H livestock auctions.
Premier Companies has chosen to continue their support of 4-H through another $50,000 annual gift to the Indiana 4-H Foundation to broadly support 4-H in Southeast Indiana. Premier Companies is proud to support opportunities for youth to gain understanding in plant and animal science and agricultural-related career programming.
Premier Companies’ thoughtful and considerate support of Indiana 4-H will provide 4-H youth with greater opportunities for growth and learning. With tremendous gratitude, the Indiana 4-H Foundation and Lawrence County thank Premier for their investment in our youth, as we continue our mission to provide resources that give the opportunity for all Indiana youth to develop life skills that benefit their communities, said Lesley Lodmell, Lawrence County Extension Educator for 4-H and Youth Development
“I don’t know how big 4-H is dreaming,” said Cooper, “but what a moment to be transformative. Premier is excited, even in a small way, to get behind their efforts.”
