The passion and drive of young people to create change, lead in their field of interest, and support their communities should be recognized and celebrated. That’s why it’s a priority for me to uplift their voices by sharing their stories and work. Every month, I will have conversations with young alumni and 4‑H’ers in my new Youth Empowerment Series. This month, I talk education equity with Stanley Celestine, Jr., Louisiana 4‑H alum, founder of Forum for Opportunity Youth, and member of the Avoyelles Parish School Board!
